Collage Workshop by Lin Collette

Have Fun With Collage at PAC!

October 20th 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.
