World Collage Day Art Workshop with John Arbuckle (Virtual)
Saturday, May 14, 2022
10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Join us on World Collage Day, May 14, 2022 for a live and interactive workshop to make your own collage artist trading cards and/or artist playing cards. Everyone loves getting snail mail. In this workshop you will learn how to create an original 2.5 x 3.5 sized trading cards to send to friends as a piece of mailable art using recycled materials and your creativity.
A limited number of free supplies kits will be available for pickup from the Everett Public Library. Sign-up for a kit here beginning on April 16. You do not need a kit to join the program! Supplies needed to follow along are: 2.5 x 3.5 thick paper, magazines, scissors, glue stick, pencil, and watercolors or any other paint such as acrylic.
