W.E.S.T. Community Murals at Jerry's Art A Rama

Greetings Art Fans!

You are cordially invited to help create not one but two community murals thanks to the generosity and support of the folks at Jerry's Artarama (Austin)!

RAINDATE!! As it is supposed to rain Sunday the 22, we are moving the event to Saturday, May 28, 2016  11:30 AM until 5:00 or we are done!

My students had a competition and "Art is Sweet So Give the Earth a Treat" proposal won and we will be painting it on the backside of Jerry's Art A Rama.

We will also be creating a "Before I Die" mural inspired by the work of artist Candy Chang. "Before I Die" is an interactive mural using chalkboard and chalk where the public is invited to write what they would like to do in their lifetimes.

Both events will take place during the last day of the West Austin Studio Tour.

All ages, family friendly event!

I was delighted to be invited back this year (and hope we don't get rained out like last year!). I will be hosting a Make and Take Mixed Media Altered Book Arts booth where visitors can create their own mixed media collage and/or book sculpture to keep out of up cycled books. Lots of other fun to be had as well!
