Re-imagining Pittsburgh: Monthly Painting Workshops

Local artist Ryan Ian McCormick teaches adult students to repurpose found objects (receipts, maps, bus passes, etc.) and use acrylic paint to create collages of historical Pittsburgh scenes. The class is for beginners and for artists who may be out of practice. No drawing skills are required.

All supplies are included and the class is BYOB. Students will go home with artwork of a historical Pittsburgh scene that will be ready to hang.

These painting workshops will take place at Assemble (4824 Penn Ave.) from 6:30-9:30pm on the second Saturday of the month.

Make It! With Nina

Friday, April 28th, 7-10pm

Do you need a new stool or plant stand for your house? Join our Founder and Director, Nina Barbuto, in our first ever “Make It” fundraiser. Nina will guide participants through a cardboard furniture making activity. Guests will make their own stool out of single-layered, 4mm cardboard that will easily hold their weight when finished. Use it as a plant stand, seat for children, or extra piece of furniture in your house. Tickets are $40 and include catered food, drinks and materials. All proceeds from this fundraiser benefit Assemble’s programs. 21+
