Visit the ICA during school vacation week for hands-on art-making in the Bank of America Art Lab! Visitors may drop in anytime during our open hours; spaces are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  

“Painting” off the Page, 12–4 PM

1st Floor, Art Lab

Inspired by Cicely Carew’s sculptural paintings, visitors are encouraged to play with abstraction, layering, and texture to create three-dimensional works that go beyond the frame. Using various paper, fabric, and cellophane, play and connect with the process and flow of “painting” in a whole new way.
