Family Day: Eleanor King Hookham

Just like museum founder and artist Eleanor King Hookham, families have the opportunity to use coffee as a painting medium. Hookham painted landscapes, cityscapes, still lifes, and other subjects with ink & coffee on paper and later made them into prints. Be inspired by her works featured in the McCormick House, and create your own painting on paper with coffee!
