Trick or Treat! In the #fwmoa studio we're serving up tricks with our clay trompe l'oeil sculptures. Learn how to make your own clay, choose an everyday object, and then sculpt it to fool your friends and family!
We're mad for plaid! As summer turns to fall, we're pulling out our plaid. Inspired by Washington Color School artists Paul Reed and Gene Davis, see how we channeled overlapping colors in this #saturdaystudio.
As summer comes to a close, we're staying inspired by the nature around us in the #Studio! Learn how to make a joyful (glittery!) work of art inspired by artist Frank Stella and his love of birds.
Happy birthday, Luis Jiménez! To celebrate, today in the Studio we're creating animal prints like his "Sidewinder" using a rubbing technique known as frottage.

We're going back to botanicals! Today in the #studio, we took inspiration from Michael Mazur's monoprint featuring sunflowers to create our own floral design. Learn how in this #SaturdayStudio courtesy of intern Claire Elliott!
This week in the #fwmoa Studio, we were inspired by the Gee's Bend quilters and their foray into printmaking with the Paulson Fontaine Press. Grab some paper scraps, scissors, and glue and design a paper patchwork quilt top with us!
The #fwmoa Studio is bugging out over the end of the 17 year hibernation for the Brood X #cicadas. We're not buzzing with excitement, but we're marking their return by creating watercolor resist cicadas inspired by artist's Laurel Izard & Charlie Cummings.
In the Studio we're exploring shape, color, and duality in our own (mini) mixed-media screens. They may not be large enough to divide a room, like Sorman's, but they’re great on a bookshelf--flip it around depending on how you feel that day!
In celebration of #EarthDay this week, the #fwmoa Studio is going green! Learn how to make new paper with used paper from around your home. Then, with your new (reused) paper, make a simple print inspired by nature.
