Turning Everyday Materials Into Art

Posted on October 30, 2013

Wheaton's Fiberspace and the Beard & Weill Galleries are collaborating to bring you a hands-on, lunchtime workshop by artist Jodi Colella on how to use ordinary materials to make 3D works of art. No experience is necessary.
Artistically inclined?  Born without that gene?  Either way, you can take everyday materials and turn them into art with the help of artist Jodi Colella, whose art is featured in the Beard and Weil Galleries for the rest of the semester.

To learn how, please come on:
Friday, November 15
12:00 - 1:30 (bring your lunch, and stay as long as you can)
In the FiberSpace, Old Science Center, Room 233

Learn how to construct 3D works of art using commonplace materials--including wire, yarn, screen, and fishing line--and traditional handwork techniques, such as knitting, felting, and crochet.  Jodi will show slides and samples of her work, then provide some quick demos to teach you the potential of these low-tech approaches to making art.

See artist Jodi Colella's work in the Beard and Weil Galleries as part of "The Order of the Universe" exhibition, on view through December 13.

The program is free and open to staff, faculty, and students. Materials will be provided.  Space is limited, so RSVP to Michele L'Heureux at lheureux_michele@wheatoncollege.edu by November 13.

Hope you can join us for a fun and creative lunchtime break!
