Summer Art Camp Week, June 22-26

I enjoyed being surrounded by imaginative collage artists last week at Lansing Art Gallery! Our class focused on selected twentieth century artists, such as Jackson Pollock, Helen Frankenthaler, Morris Louis, Agnes Martin, Romare Bearden, Miriam Shapiro, Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. These creative students explored using paper collage to express themselves—wonderful work! Thanks to LAG for providing an inspiring studio space! And many thanks to Absolute Gallery of Old Town that donated all of our mat board for collaging!CollageARt

Yarn Bomb a Lansing Tree on June 24th!

Several folks joined me, noon-1:00PM, June 24th, for yarn bombing fun! We tagged a tree in front of Kositchek’s, by Lansing Art Gallery on Washington Avenue, with yarn, crochet and sweater scraps! WOW–try your hand at guerilla fiber art in downtown Lansing! Check it out and let me know what you think–the trees will be “bombed” through August! Thank you to everyone who participated!! Yarn Bomb!

Window Art in Downtown Lansing!

I am proud to be part of the Pop Up Project, sponsored by the Lansing Art Gallery (lansingartgallery.org) to celebrate their fiftieth anniversary this year. Check out windows along Washington and you will see ART June-August! My Zentangle inspired window art is at the Foster Swift Collins & Smith office, next to “The Daily Bagel.” Art also appears in the windows at the Knapp’s Center building (300 Washington) and the YMCA (119 Washington). Have fun enjoying the visual stimulation all summer!PopUpJane

Zentangle Demonstration

I was at MICA Gallery doing Zentangle demonstrations for “Be a Tourist in Your Own Town” on May 30th–we had a grand time! http://www.micagallery.org/ Several people, youth and adults, tried their hand at creating their own tangled art! This peaceful, meditative drawing process is good for artists of all ages and skill levels! Thanks to MICA and their interns for helping make Saturday a great day for tangling!MICA1
