Art in the Park is excited to welcome artist Veronica De Jesus for a series of workshops organized around resources. The first two workshops on February 15 and 22 will focus on the transformation of lint, the byproduct of washing our clothes.
We will spend time with this discarded material, lint. Lint will be our powersource, putting both a light on both the fragility and power of resources. We will look into lint as an examination into perspective and human perception of what lint means as a resource.
These first two workshops will focus on the process of working with lint, and turning lint into paper. We will expand on ideas collectively.
We will wear gloves while exploring this material. Ideas generated from this workshop will lead into the next. Come take part!
