Art by c.hill (via dumoisgallery.com)

The Du Mois gallery on Freret will host a mixed-media workshop Saturday taught by a Brooklyn artist who creates surrealist images based on vinyl scraps.

More information, via the Du Mois website:

We are very excited to have c.hill, back from Brooklyn, to teach a really cool workshop for the young and young at heart.

We will be creating postcards using vinyl and mixed media on paper. Then, like c.hill, we will use the leftover vinyl scraps to construct an image in the style of “The Game.” For those not familiar with her work, please see the series of images in her current exhibition at the gallery.

The shape or scrap becomes a point of reference in the direction of the detailed surreal image of her imagination evolving into a specific narrative driven image all the while being an exercise in spontaneity.

This workshop is designed for ages 7 and UP, bring creativity. Materials will be provided and each participant will go home with two finished artworks. Fine for kids/parents/grandparents alike. Workshop will be held indoors at Du Mois Gallery.

Space is limited, please e-mail dumoisgallery@gmail.com, with title “Game Workshop” to reserve your space.
