Beneath the Surface: Albus Cavus - Wheatpasting & Poster Making

Tuesday, June 11, 2013 - 5:30 p.m.

Albus Cavus is a collective of artists, scientists and educators who improve quality of urban life through community based public art and creative participatory events. 

In this program you will learn about wheatpasting, a highly effective public art technique. Wheatpasted art is created in a studio on a large piece of paper and subsequently installed. It is closely related to installing wallpaper. This workshop will explore wheatpasting both as art and as a potential career.

Ages 13-19.
