Hyperlocal Creations @ Saturday Crafternoons!
On Saturday, November 8, the Saturday Crafternoons program had participants create collages, paintings, 3D paper objects, and other crafts to be submitted to the Hyperlocal Art Show.
We had a collage station, painting station, and drawing station where the kids could move freely within the space at any time to make a masterpiece. The collage station had much to choose from, as there were newspapers and magazines galore!
At the painting station, the kids got creative by splatter painting as well as using coffee filters, isopropyl alcohol, and paint to create tie-dye flowers.
The paper station yielded drawings and awesome 3D boxes.
The Hyperlocal Art Show is open to artists of all ages who live or work within a ten-block radius of Assemble. Artists submit their work to Assemble, which curates the show that will be displayed in the space throughout the month of December. The submission of non-traditional works, such as new media, robots, sculpture, and crafts, is encouraged. The show opens during Unblurred, which is the Penn Ave. Arts District’s First Fridays event; it will take place on Friday, December 5, from 7-10 pm.
