Knock Knock Children’s Museum’s
Meet John Lawson!
You may recognize this familiar face from your visits to the Art Garden. Knock Knock Children’s Museum’s February Creative-in-Residence is our own John Lawson. After coming to Louisiana from England to study at LSU, John fell in love with the area, stayed, and found inspiration from Mardi Gras. The beads we catch during parades every year became the medium for his mosaics.
John will bring his expertise in sculptures and reuse of Mardi Gras beads to Knock Knock Saturday, February 17th to host five, 45-minute long workshops on Mardi Gras Mosaics for children ages 5 and older. Children will use recycled Mardi Gras beads to construct individual framed mosaics.
Register Here for one of the workshops.
Workshop are free with the price of admission, and registration is required.
