PECO Family Jams: Scratch Drawings with Kate Glasheen

  • Philadelphia's Magic Gardens 1020 South Street Philadelphia, PA, 19147 United States (map)

Isaiah Zagar, the creator of Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, uses the sgraffito decoration technique of scratching away one layer to reveal another on many of his handmade tiles throughout PMG. Try your hand at sgraffito with teaching artist Kate Glasheen. Create a colorful base of color layered underneath black paint, then scratch away your own drawing to reveal the colors below.

Learn more about Isaiah Zagar and his sgraffito tiles on a family-friendly tour at 1:00 or 2:30.

PECO Family Jams are PMG’s one-of-a-kind, family-oriented programs, featured every second Sunday of the month between NOON and 4:00 PM. All PECO Family Jams workshops and activities are FREE with admission.
