Arts for All: Abstractly Artistic   Leave a comment

Abstract Example

Join us for our next Arts for All activity this weekend! In honor of the annual Midwest National Abstract Art Exhibition, visitors will have the chance to create their own  abstract artwork.

After learning the difference between geometric and organic shapes, we’ll use colorful cellophane to put together interesting compositions. You can make a crazy abstract face using triangles and hearts, or a zany forest with star shaped trees. Come on over to the GPAC and show us your Abstractly Artistic side!

Sept 29 – Nov 4

Saturdays 12pm – 4pm

Sundays 1pm – 5pm
