The Poetry of Patterns: Workshop

November 16, 2017
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Brooklyn Museum, 200 Eastern Pkwy, Brooklyn, NY

This fall, educators are invited join the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Public Library, and Brooklyn Brainery in an interdisciplinary journey of storytelling and science. Participants will go behind the scenes at these institutions after hours to experience artworks, gardens, and historical archives. Each workshop will explore how storytelling and science have functioned in support of, and opposition to, each another at key moments throughout U.S. history.

All workshops begin at the Museum and take place from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. Register for one workshop ($30), or attend the full series of four ($110).

Join us at the Brooklyn Brainery for our final session, complete with skill-sharing, art-making, and wine! We’ll begin by studying a painting in the Museum’s collection and plants from Brooklyn Botanical Garden. We’ll think about patterns in artworks and the natural world, and compare them to patterns in historical narratives, science, and poetry. Finally, we’ll learn the art of printmaking to further explore the idea of patterns, and toast to all the great work done over these four weeks! Registration is now open for up to 20 participants.

This event is sponsored by the Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Public Library, and Brooklyn Brainery.
