Access Parrish Online

The Parrish Art Museum is committed to making its building, programs, and resources accessible to all audiences. In 2016 Parrish educators, in partnership regional agencies, developed Access Parrish, a series of learning experiences designed to engage and welcome specific audiences. 

Museum educator Wendy Gottlieb leads an Online Workshop from the Parrish Studio.
