The third Creating Community Workshop is at 12 p.m., on Saturday, Jan. 17, in the Atrium of the Jackson County Public Library.
Using an assortment of found objects, fabric, natural material, and traditional art supplies (paint, pencils, chalk) participants will begin by working from a place of intention, or a theme, and move toward interpretative abstraction, or collage, through the free flow and exploration of mixed media. Bring any special items you may want to incorporate - photographs, a piece of broken jewelry, a beautiful piece of material. No experience is necessary for this workshop and it is free of charge. The workshop is limited to 12 participants. Those interested should call the library to register.
Dr. Rachel York-Bridgers is an educator, community activist, artist, environmentalist and researcher, currently teaching English, and leading professional based critical thinking workshops at the University of Toronto.
