Welcome spring with unabashed joy in a workshop series celebrating nature. Participants will make sculptures from recyclable materials and use them in a celebratory parade. People of all ages and abilities are welcome to join for any and all of the events. The program is organized with Nina Ganci, ecologically considerate clothing designer and owner of Skif International, and Artica, a group of artists providing a platform to celebrate the creative spirit of St. Louis. Artica celebrates the river in an annual festival along the Mississippi River.
Workshop leaders will guide you in making sculptures from plastic bottles and other recyclable materials. Everything you make will be used in a public celebration and parade the following weekend. All materials will be provided. Drop in at any time and stay for as long as you please.
Inspired by the current exhibitions, Faye HeavyShield: Confluences and The Nature of Things: Medieval Art and Ecology, 1100-1550, the series considers the environmental impacts of artmaking, honors nature, and delights in making art together.
