Artists in medieval times sometimes used sheets of gold pounded thinner than paper to adorn their work. In this workshop you’ll see the delicate process of applying gold leaf to a painting and then create your own “golden” masterpiece.

Gallery tour plus studio workshops for families. Kids and adults delight in exploring the Museum’s collection, creating projects together, and discovering one another’s creativity. A different theme each time means there’s always something new to explore. Register online, by calling (919) 715-5923, or in person at the Museum Box Office.
