Winter Workspace Workshop: Altered Books

Meet at Glyndor Gallery

Register for this event

Gain insight into Winter Workspace artist Shanti Grumbine’s creative process and explore the winter landscape as a source of inspiration. Responding to the grounds and greenhouses, participants will use disparate collage materials, paint and paper-cutting techniques to transform existing books into a series of personal and formal impressions. Without having to face a blank page or commit to one image, participants will learn how to alter existing content to explore and reflect their immediate experience. Art materials are provided unless otherwise noted. Workshops are open to all visitors ages 12 and over when accompanied by an adult.

Registration required, online, onsite at the Perkins Visitor Center or by calling 718.549.3200 x251. Free with admission to the grounds.
