Cut It Up Art Card Party: “Put A Bird On It” with Mark Elliott
Create unique art cards using images, shapes and colors cut from a large selection and variety of magazines. Choose magazines to cut up or select from a collection of high quality bird photography images on glossy cardstock. Collage onto art board or cardstock, postcard size and/or larger. Come together for the sheer joy of making art. We’ll provide the art supplies, you bring a good supply of creative enthusiasm. No art-making experience is needed. Join in on this relaxed atmosphere, not necessarily taught, but instead gently facilitated by an artist who will happily help and answer any questions. Arrive anytime and come for just a bit or stay the entire time…you decide! Adult-geared event but parent-guided kids are welcome.
