August guest artist - LorriMarie Jenkins

Join us on Saturday, August 12th (1-3pm) at the Concord Library for a super fun, hands-on demo with Lorrie Marie Jenkins.

LorriMarie and her husband love to travel - she says she would go crazy if she couldn't create some type of mixed media art during her time away. So she developed a "traveling collage" kit that she can play with anytime, anywhere.

With magazine pages, pre-cut images, gel pens and glue sticks, she will show us how to compose interesting collages on small substrates - all supplies will be furnished, so come have some creative summer fun with us. Everyone is welcome - see you there!
