RSVP

Open Studio is a monthly program for young visitors and families inspired by contemporary art practices and CAG’s current exhibitions. In April, we invite you to join us for an art-making workshop led by artist Kit Liu.

Inspired by CAG’s current exhibition Kathy Slade: As the sun disappears and the shadows descend from the mountaintop, Kit will guide participants in making a collagraph print, a printmaking technique made from a collage of various materials glued onto a plate. Through a playful exploration of shapes, lines and textures on paper, this workshop will investigate both practices of repetition and imitation.

RSVP

Registration for this event is free, but limited. RSVP to secure your place here.
