Art Alive! at Haslett Library

I was the visiting artist at the Haslett Library on Monday, June 18th, for the summer "Art Alive!" program.  Folks dropped in between 11:00AM-3:00PM to interact with me demonstrating art making in the community room. I demonstrated mixed media collage using natural, found and recycled objects. Two of my young visitors created spontaneous butterflies on the work table--WOW!!

Super Fantastic Art!
