april 20th: nature’s palette tickets

COME JOIN ME FOR A PAINT-MAKING WORKSHOP THAT I’LL BE LEADING AS THE SWEET AUBURN ARTIST-IN-RESIDENCE. I’LL BE DRAWING ON MY EXPERIENCE AS BOTH A PAINTER AND HORTICULTURAL EDUCATOR TO GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE PROCESS OF EXTRACTING PIGMENTS FROM PLANTS AND TURNING THEM INTO PAINT. TOGETHER, WE’LL CREATE A COLLABORATIVE PAINTING THAT CELEBRATES THE VIBRANT HISTORY AND CULTURE OF SWEET AUBURN, INCORPORATING FIGURES, MEMORIES, AND COLORS THAT ARE MEANINGFUL TO OUR NEIGHBORHOOD. DON’T WORRY ABOUT BRINGING ANY MATERIALS — EVERYTHING YOU NEED WILL BE PROVIDED. AND TO KEEP OUR CREATIVE JUICES FLOWING, WE’LL ALSO HAVE A LIGHT LUNCH AND BEVERAGES AVAILABLE.
