Blackout Poetry Workshop with Thomas Terceira
Saturday November 23rd
Creating blackout poetry is fun and rewarding for artists, designers, writers and just about anyone. In blackout (or erasure) poetry an existing text is altered to uncover a new work by eliminating the majority of the original words.
Blackout poetry is a great way to get your creativity flowing. Come try it for yourself. No experience necessary.
Free and all materials are provided but feel free to bring your favorite art supplies and text to work on if you wish.
Escape from the Holidays at PAC's Mill Gallery
December 15th from 1:00-4:00pm
PAC member Lin Collette will be leading a collage art workshop for members and non-members at PAC's Mill Gallery, First Floor, 560 Mineral Spring Avenue in Pawtucket. This is not a formal teaching workshop but, rather, a chance to explore working with paper and other materials to create a new work of art. Materials will be provided but you are welcome to bring in things they'd like to work with. If you have tools you prefer to use (such as Exacto knives, cutting boards, scissors, glue, etc), do bring them with you.
The workshop is free and open to members and non-members, but a $5 donation towards materials would be greatly appreciated.
