Family Studio / Norton From Home

Make art a family affair – virtual!  

In this family-style program, children ages 5-12 and their accompanying grown-ups look at a work of art, share in an art discussion, and participate in a related art workshop led by a museum educator. This interactive program engages the entire family from the comfort and safety of home.

ONLINE | María Berrío: Esperando mientras la noche florece (Waiting for the Night to Bloom)

We will explore the work of contemporary artist and the Norton’s 2021 RAW exhibition focus, María Berrío. Then, we will create works of art inspired by her collages.

$3 Per Family / Members Free



Maria Berrío’s work explores contemporary themes of displacement through a visual vocabulary that employs both lifelike depictions and magical realism. The evolution of her work from fantastic to realistic environments focuses on the theme of survival and other universal struggles, with images of women and the natural world to offer hope as she reflects on the effects of this extraordinary time in our existence. Inspired by her own family’s history leaving her native Bogotá, Colombia, Berrío promotes the resilience of women – as mothers, daughters, sisters, and friends.
