Keweenaw Krayons to offer Altered Box Workshop July 7

MOHAWK -- Keweenaw Krayons continues its Ripple Effect Summer Recycled Art Classes and Open Studio time with an Altered Box Workshop from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. this Wednesday, July 7, at Keweenaw Krayons in Mohawk.*

Artist Rachel Sommer will assist participants in creating personalized boxes in which to keep favorite treasures such as stones, shells, photos, recipes and more.

Cost for the workshop is $5 which includes all supplies including boxes. Participants are also invited to bring their own special box and items to use in decorating it. The class is open to all ages. Youth under six years of age are asked to bring an adult or teen with them. Family discounts, bartering and scholarships are available.

Open Studio time will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Thursday, July 8, so participants can continue working on their boxes or another art project. It is hoped that participants will learn the art medium and be able to teach it to others, including family members and friends, thus continuing the "ripple effect."

To register or to obtain more information on the workshop call 337-4706 or email staff@keweenawkrayons.com.

The Ripple Effect Art Workshops and Open Studio time are funded in part through the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, Copper Country Community Arts Council and the Denise Marth Memorial Grant through the Superior Child Abuse Prevention Council.
