Like any budding artist, Still learned foundational techniques as he began his career. Join a Clyfford Still Museum educator in the Early Years exhibition to see how Still applied these techniques in his early work, then move into The Making Space to try it yourself during a playful 30-minute, hands-on workshop led by the Art Students League of Denver. Materials for each workshop are included.

Max Maddox leads the February 6 workshop with the theme: Pastels.
