Take a step back in time! Mix paints and pigments using techniques from the past while learning the history of paints and pigments found in the Museum''s collections. Science and art converge in this workshop with hands-on activities and interdisciplinary lessons for the classroom.  Use pigments to mix oil paints in the style of the old masters and try them out on canvas.  See the cochineal dying process first-hand and take a turn at dying using this valuable red pigment made from a beetle.
