Explore Andy Warhol’s use of silver and gold throughout his career, from his gold Marilyns and Jackies to Elvis on the silver screen. Practice Warhol’s technique of gold leafing, found in the embellishment of his much-loved holiday cards and illustrations from the 1950s. Experiment with rubber stamping, blotted-line, and silkscreen printing to create holiday cards and wrapping paper. ACT 48 credit will be available for this workshop. Tickets include museum admission, workshop materials, and one drink ticket.
