Paint, collage, and assemble a flock of birds to be used in a performance at Foo Fest! Foo Fest Artist-in-Residence Xander Marro is concocting a rare and captivating spectacle involving birds, cats, witches, and more, and it all comes to life August 10th on Empire St. In this workshop, you’ll get a sneak peek at what’s in store, and create at least two bird sculptures – one for you to carry in the procession.
This is also a great opportunity to come check out AS220 Industries, where the Printshop, Labs, and Media Arts programs offer an array of tools for making just about anything.
There will be three sessions of this workshop that will each accommodate 12 participants:
Tuesday, August 6th, 6-8pm in the AS220 Printshop, 2nd floor
Wednesday, August 7th, 2-4pm in the AS220 Labs, 2nd floor
Thursday, August 8th, 6-8pm in the AS220 Labs, 2nd floor
