Green swirls above an icon that reads "Stanley Creates"

Did you know that the average human eye can detect more shades of green than of any other color? Green also has many meanings and interpretations, such as wealth, peace, springtime, and envy. Join us for Stanley Creates as we examine and learn about the abstract painting Portrait in Green (1969) by Lee Krasner. Then we’ll create our own abstract artwork using just one color—green. Let's create together!

Megan Dehner, master's candidate in art education, will lead this workshop.

Stanley Creates is planned with families in mind; UI students are also welcome to attend.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
