Welcome to our community arts event, Art Swap with Christy Litster. Engage in collaborative creating by swapping art pieces with others! This is a great way to learn the importance of collaboration in the arts, and the many different ways we interpret things in a community. Everyone’s effort counts in creating these multi-media art works. Christy will guide you through intuitive art making with use of a variety of different materials. In this art class, experimentation, collaboration, and having fun with friends, family, and community are encouraged.
