Hands-on art activities are back all week! Join us in The LeRoy Neiman Art Studio
Art Studio Calendar
Tuesdays through Fridays – Color Theory with Tempera Sticks
10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
What do you get when you mix red and blue, or white and red? Let’s practice color theory as we play with the vibrant colors that tempera sticks create!
Saturday and Sunday – Mushroom Clay Play
10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. | 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Let’s explore clay by making mushrooms! Create tall, big, small, or squat mushrooms. Mimic edible ones like shitake or poisonous ones like the red fly agaric. It’s so fun to shape a piece of clay into a toadstool that stands up straight. Experiment with size and patterns while you practice molding, coiling, or sculpting.

Meet our Artist-in-Residence: Nancy Chang
July 15 – October 8, 2023
Nancy Chang’s artwork weaves together themes of ecology, identity, and belonging, inviting viewers to explore their relationship with the natural world. Reflecting on cherished moments from her childhood, Chang’s work celebrates her earliest friends: the trees, soil, and plants from her local parks.
Working across mediums such as photography, block printing, comics, and illustration, Chang’s work invites pause and reflection. As a process-driven artist, Chang develops intimacy with her subjects and art materials. She creates natural dyes from the plants she harvests, and asks her subjects to take her to the places where they feel the most joy.
Chang doesn’t just pause; she asks us to pause alongside her. She curates multi-sensory experiences, asking us to paint with pigments from the earth or giving us instructions on how to mindfully eat a peach in a warm patch of sunlight. By prompting us to remember our relationship to nature, she fosters a deeper shared responsibility for the preservation of our planet.
