Virtual Family Art Saturday

Get creative and make art together at home with Family Art Saturday online! Join us for a video art activity that connects with our BCA Center summer exhibition JoAnne Carson: A Sense of Wonder, featuring the artist’s imaginative paintings and drawings of surreal natural worlds.

Watch the video activity below and follow along with the guidebook as BCA teaching artist Jessie Baldwin guides families in creating “blooming sculptures.” These sculptures evoke Carson’s colorful, whimsical imagery and the transformative cycles of nature.  



JoAnne Carson draws inspiration for her drawings and paintings from the flora in her lush garden in Shoreham, VT, where she experiments with form, composition, and color. Her playful, surreal imagery evokes the transformative and cyclical nature of life. Learn more about her exhibition at    

BCA's 2020 exhibition year is presented by Mascoma Bank.
