At this creative time out, participants experiment with mixed media to pursue self-directed art projects in tune with their own aesthetic. We make art as if no one is looking. If you like to work in communal quiet or congenial conversation, you'll find your comfort zone here. We leave our politics at the door but we do share artistic expression (including lots of laughter and times of silence), inspiration, and a variety of techniques.
Members play with mixed media, including -- but not limited to -- paper arts and crafts, collage, assemblage, soul cards, tags, art journals, and altered books using a range of implements and methods. Bring everything you'll need except smelly stuff that some people may not be able to tolerate. In terms of the size of your project, keep in mind that each artist has an area of table surface about the length of two, big placemats lined up end to end with plenty of elbow room between people.
The group meets from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays about twice a month at Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center in artsy Hyattsville. Participants pay $8 in cash each time for the space and website fees. Beverages -- but not alcohol -- are welcome.
Bring your mixed media materials and work on your latest project in the company of other creatives in a light-filled space at Pyramid Atlantic Arts Center. You can disconnect from the rest of life and give yourself a rejuvenating time out in artsy Hyattsville. Participants pay $8 each time for the space and Meetup website fees.
