Spurlock Sunday: Chigiri-e

Our Spurlock Sunday family event will be a celebration of Japanese chigiri-e. In this artform, artists create pictures by gluing hand-torn pieces of thin, colored paper to a plain background. Completed artworks often resemble watercolor paintings. The program is free and everyone is welcome.
