Shape-ly Character Workshop with Artist-in-Residence Emily Balsley

Bubbler
Saturday, Sep 7, 10:00am to 12:00pm

Did you know that most artists build up their characters using basic shapes? In this 2-hour family-friendly workshop, we will be combining squares, circles, triangles (and more!) to create two characters - a self-portrait and a zany creature, inspired by Emily’s recently-completed 100-Day Project!
All ages are welcome; registration is capped at 15 participants.
