Event Description

Perfect for teens and adults, this workshop will take inspiration from multidisciplinary artist Adam Pendelton.

Adam Pendelton is a multidisciplinary artist who employs mainly text, paint, and collage to review culture and social resistance.

Participants will use pages of a book to create a new work of art based on their unique expression methods. While in this workshop, we will select key words and phrases within the book’s pages to be omitted, drawn-out, circled, or emphasized for a final artistic piece. This workshop will help participants to learn the skills of creative writing, painting, sketching and collaging for a mixed media art experience. Although all ages and experience levels are welcome, this workshop will be targeted more towards teenagers and adults. The images below are examples of a potential final product.

Masks are required to be worn during this workshop. For information on parking and directions, visit us here.
