Create at Home: Mirror Monotypes

Since we can't welcome you to the museum for our monthly Second Saturdays Are for Families program, we invite you to create at home with us! Each week, we'll post a supply list, followed by a step-by-step activity guide to make an artistic creation with materials found in your own home.

You’ll have twice the fun with this week's Create at Home activity, inspired by artist Nic Nicosia's sculpture, the twins, which formerly made its home at Laguna Gloria. Make a mirror-image work of art while exploring monotyping with materials you can find right in your home!

Keep your eyes peeled on Friday, June 19 on our Facebook and Instagram for a step-by-step video tutorial to make your artistic creation. You can also visit for more information and past projects!

In the meantime, let the search for your materials begin!
