Spring Break Fun – Family Program: Velvet Elvis Painting

Mar 26, 202211:00 AM - 11:30 AM

In her song “Velvet Elvis,” Kacey Musgraves references a black velvet painting of Elvis Presley. Thought to have originated in the Kashmir region of India and popularized in Mexico, velvet painting journeyed across continents and evolved into American folk art. During this workshop, try your hand at this unique, enduring art form by creating your own black velvet painting using pastels and black light paint. Learn to paint a portrait of Presley or another icon of your choice, then see your art glow under a black light! Ages 5 and up. Presented in support of the exhibit Kacey Musgraves: All of the Colors. Taylor Swift Education Center. Included with museum admission. Free to museum members. Youth from Davidson County and counties that surround Davidson may enter the museum free as part of the Museum’s Community Counts initiative. Up to two accompanying adults receive 25 percent off admission. Proof of residency required. For more information, please visit Community Counts or inquire at the Box Office.
