Saturday, Feb. 10 from 10am-noon at the Sumner Teen Center, 976 Grassland Pl, Gallatin, TN 37066 with Dee Kimbrell.

This workshop will be focused on making a piece of art that will be part of the Visions of Peace exhibit.

There is an exhibit that is taking place beginning the end of Feb in Detroit connected to the United Nation’s Rights of the Child called Visions of Peace. We have been asked to participate. They have even said that they would love for us to come up to the exhibit. The piece that the participants make for this project will be exhibited in Detroit. Here are the specifics:

Dee will cut a piece of that black fabric about 3 x 4 ft for the “canvas” and make a casing for a rod to hang it. The participants will trace their hands onto the back of a recycled zip lock bag with a sharpie and then do zentangle decorations on their hand. I might have them write one of the “rights” on the back of the hand as well. They will cut the hands out.The hands will be sewn onto the black fabric with needle and thread. Who does that part will depend on time and who shows up.

Participants can paint an image of the world (one larger one) or a peace sign on another piece of black fabric and attach it to the canvas to give it a little depth or paint a saying in the middle of the canvas with the hands surrounding it.

The workshop is part of the Teapot Diplomats program and is open and free. However, space is limited to 12 individuals
