World Collage Day, May 12, 2018

The first ever World Collage Day will be held Saturday, May 12, 2018. You know that’s right up my alley!

Uncommon ART will have artists doing collage demos and a make-and-take project for visitors. The Learned Owl Book Store will host Gretchen Bierbaum signing copies of her book, Collage in All Dimensions. Gretchen, as you may know, is President and Founder of The National Collage Society.

Activities at Uncommon ART will run from 11am-3pm. The book signing will take place from 11am-1pm.

Come join in the fun!

Kolaj Magazine, an international publication dedicated to the art of contemporary collage, is organizing the event.

Sketching in January 2018

Come join us for sketching! We're an informal group who meet Friday mornings from 9:00-11:00 and sketch on location.

Bring your own materials (sketchbook, paper, pencil, pen, watercolor kit). We usually begin with a few quick sketches as a group to get warmed up, then work independently on views that interest us.

There’s no fee and minimal instruction. Beginners and experienced sketchers are welcome.
