Time: 
10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Place: 
The Latcham Gallery Studio (6240 Main Street)

Join us at The Latcham Gallery for a free Saturday art activity, 10am - 4pm.

Ray McNeice and Margaret Grandison will be demonstrating rainbow collage techniques and printmaking using stamps and textures carved into corks. They will be at the Gallery from 11am to 1pm to demonstrate. These activities will continue until the Gallery closes.

Help us create a leaf for THE LEAF PROJECT! Visitors will be asked to donate their artwork (don't worry - you can make one for you, and one for the Gallery!) to the Leaf Project. We will cut out leaves from the completed collages and prints. Visitors will have the opportunity to see their leaves hang from a giant mobile in the Gallery beginning October 21. All ages and abilities welcome. The Gallery is stroller and wheelchair accessible.
