Live Virtual Art Week for Families + Kids | Day 2
On the second day of The Broad's virtual art-making week, Spring into The Broad, join Greetings from South Central’s founder Karina Esperanza Yanez for an art-making activity inspired by Oscar Murillo’s artwork trade today (2014–2015) from the Broad collection.
During this free virtual workshop, you and your family will create three mixed media banners using a variety of everyday materials, such as paper straws, coins, and paint, to make multi-layered, expressionistic marks.

- Paper/ Cardstock, various sheets (any color)
- Paper Straws
- Fabric Scraps
- Bubble Wrap
- Letter Stencils
- Acrylic or Tempera Paint

For Ages 6 and Up
