About the Program

Join Skirball Artist in Residence Adam Silverman as you squish, scrape, and mix to make natural pigments for an art project from soil, spices, berries, and other colorful plants. Then use your pigments to express yourself in painting. Plant arrangements in vessels from the Common Ground installation will be on hand if you become inspired to paint a still life!
