Art After Work: Judith Scott

Join Intuit on the third Thursday of the month for Art After Work, a free series of facilitated art-making workshops inspired by outsider and self-taught art and artists from the museum’s collections and exhibitions. This month, Senior Manager of Learning and Engagement Paula Santos will lead a discussion and facilitate a workshop inspired by artist Judith Scott. In the virtual workshop, participants will focus on the texture, materials and wrapping techniques seen in Scott’s work and create their own sculpture.

Suggested materials

Art After Work is for everyone, including beginners and people who say they “are not artists.” We can all be artists! It is a guided workshop, and instruction will begin at 5 p.m. central.

Closed captions will be available at the virtual program. Please contact Paula Santos at with questions related to accessibility accommodations.
