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.
