Join us for a hands-on workshop! You are invited to this special one-hour program with artist Eileen MacArthur, focusing on artmaking as both an individual and collective pursuit. Inspired by MacArthur’s art practice, participants will explore methods of representation, subjects, and materials to create floral images that will then be combined into a larger image of a garden. Participants will be encouraged to consider how the images complement and contradict one another, and how each image contributes to the overall composition. This workshop is suited to beginners and experienced artists alike. All materials will be provided, and everyone is welcome. Presented by the AGG Volunteer Association, this workshop is free. Registration is required; sign up today at the link in our bio!
