Visitors of all ages and abilities are invited to explore some of Andy Warhol’s signature art-making techniques in our underground studio The Factory. Hands-on activities include watercolor painting, blotted-line drawing, acetate collage, silkscreen printing, and more. To learn the silkscreen printing process, participants may choose from a variety of images and colors of ink to print on paper or fabric. T-shirts, tote bags, and other materials for printing are available for purchase for a nominal fee, allowing visitors to create their own one-of-a-kind artworks and souvenirs.

The Factory is run by artist educators with backgrounds in fine arts, art education, and art history. These artist educators have extensive knowledge of Warhol’s art and life and are happy to answer questions about the artist and the museum.
