Oxygen Art Centre presents a series of community art events entitled Lost Cat! Taking place during the Fall 2023 and Spring 2024 semesters, the series offers free art-making sessions with regional artists on a range of artistic mediums.
The title, Lost Cat, is meant to translate a playful sense of collective curiosity for the arts that is at the heart of the concept and practice of Oxygen’s community-based arts programming.
Event #3: Saturday, February 24, 2024, from 1:00 – 3:00 PM
Altered Books with Rayya Liebich
Admission is free
The third workshop of the series takes place on Saturday, February 24, 2024, from 1:00 to 3:00 PM at Oxygen Art Centre. Writer and teaching artist Rayya Liebich leads the workshop, which will guide participants in altering books!
This all levels, all ages workshop is for anyone who likes to create and doesn’t want to be bound by rules! Using the container of a hardcover discarded book, participants will be introduced to a variety of artistic mediums (blackout poetry, book folding, collage, stenciling, stamping, and more) to transform their book into a unique creation. This hands-on and fun project reveals infinite possibilities of creative play, celebrates divergent thinking, and results in artworks as diverse as the people who made them. Inspiring examples and a wide array of materials will be provided.
