Artist Appreciation Workshop: Piet Mondrian

Join us as research librarian Michele Marram explores the career of Piet Mondrian, a Dutch artist most well known as a leader of the De Stijl movement.  How did this artist evolve from painting landscapes to those odd squares and rectangles??  Following the presentation we’ll have a chance to create our own “Mondrian-esque” works.

Materials needed:  Construction paper(white, red, blue, yellow, black), scissors, glue, pencil, ruler.  If you don’t have construction paper, any paper available will do. (If you only have white paper you can use crayons or markers.)

Thursday, Jun 11 | 1 – 2 pm
Artist Appreciation Workshop: Wassily Kadinsky

Materials needed: white paper, markers or colored pencils or pens, rulers, cups or glasses.
