Inspired by the noted works of abstract expressionist painter, Norman Lewis, CMA visitors will create their very own studies of Negative Space! Looking closely at his pieces, “Too Much Aspiration” and “Jazz Band,” among others, young artists will practice a blind contour exercise and will then mimic Lewis’ painting practice to color block their piece.
