About the event
Enjoy this fun, collaborative collage class hosted by international artist, JK Russ. Students will connect their human selves with the creatures who share our local habitat. Learn how to create a surreal collage, starting with unique cut outs of desert creatures. Anthropomorphize these creatures by attaching human arms that reach out and connect with project participants. Each participant can select or draw their own creature, and add to the growing collage. Suitable for all ages and no previous experience required. This class is an epic community builder!
