Out of the Woods by Leslie Tharp

Join me tonight for this hands on workshop in collaboration with Creative for Health and Art Lab.

This workshop is funding through a grant from the LIVESTRONG foundation and is free to attend.

Wire Works will be a hands-on wire sculpting workshop exploring the nature of line in space. Leslie Tharp’s work often incorporates organically moving metal line-work, bending, branching, and colliding to form complex and large sculptures that take on new shapes and forms when viewed from different angles.

Join us for this fun and creative workshop. Sculpting in wire is an opportunity to lift thoughts and drawings off the pages of your sketchbook and place them in space, where they can grow in form and complexity and become a finished artwork or possibly a maquette for a larger sculpture! Leslie will discuss her approach to sculpting with metal and then open the floor for a relaxed and creative session of wire sculpting with the group. Everyone is welcome to explore sculpting with wire and supplies such will be provided. Bring your sketchbooks!

Creative for Health is funded by a grant from the LIVESTRONG Foundation and provide weekly arts and writing workshops for people affected by cancer, including patients, survivors and caregivers. Participants enjoy painting, sculpting, writing, dancing, and singing in a fun and supportive environment. The workshops are FREE and open to the public. Walk-ins welcome.
