|Highlights from our 2010 Workshop!|
Left Bank Gallery Essex, LLC will host its third annual Valentine Workshop with collage artist, Patrice Nelson on Saturday, February 5th from 2-4pm. Guided by the artist, children and the young at heart are invited to use paint, glitter, ephemera, and imagination to create wonderful greeting cards for parents, teachers, friends and their sweet hearts. Spend the afternoon learning how to design fun and fantastic collages and test the limits of your creativity.
Patrice Nelson was born in California and raised in Texas and Minnesota and spent several years on the West Coast before settling in Chester, CT with her loving husband and four beautiful children. As an artist, Patrice is always exploring and experimenting with texture, color, and surface; and putting to use her extensive collection of found objects and vintage clippings. She enjoys the process of creating her distinctive collages, and loves every minute of gathering, painting, and “tearin’ it up.” The artist says, “It pleases me to put a smile on someone’s face with my work.” Join Patrice during this free public event to create your own loving artwork and darling valentines.
