Petri Dish Picassos

Bacteria art - is it crazy, awesome, or both? Come learn about professional artists that use bacteria to make living artwork and learn how to become a petri dish Picasso yourself! Participants will be provided with agar plates, paints, and tools commonly used to “paint” with bacteria. You will get to take home your own petri dish masterpiece!

Getting there: From the North Avenue MARTA station, board bus 1 and ride approximately 15 minutes, exiting at Marietta and Means Street (Salvation Army and a stoplight are at the intersection). Walk on Means Street toward Salvation Army to reach the building.
