Art Class Description: 

This class will talk about paper collage, and then end in a hands-on art activity! We’ll take a look at the art historical and contemporary collage artists Lois Lord, Kurt Schwitters, and Mikalene Thomas, and their influence on this multi-media art form, and then use the materials in your space to make a collage of your own. No previous experience required, only a desire to have fun in this engaging art lesson. 

Expand your understanding of this wonderful media, and connect to other artists on Earth Day!
