Inspired by the exhibition The Book of Ruth: Medieval to Modern, families will “take a page” from contemporary artist Barbara Wolff and learn how to make pigments. Participants will grind materials such as saffron, insects, and malachite to create vibrant colors, then paint their own image inspired by the manuscripts displayed in the exhibition. The biblical story from the book of Ruth will be discussed, and its enduring values of friendship and family.
Appropriate for ages 6-14.
