Outdoor creative family workshops
The Secret Life of Trees: Get creative with your family while enjoying art and nature. Take part in a printing and drawing workshop using a slice of log, inspired by the Kings of Thule series by artist Jean Paul Riopelle, subject of a major exhibition at the MMFA this summer.

Nature Prints: In this cyanotype workshop, inspired by the exhibitions Ecologies: A Song for Our Planet and Yann Pocreau: Impermanencies, discover a photographic printing process in which you work with Mother Nature to create an artwork.
