August Events-Art in the Garden Workshop

Hope you can join us for this workshop!

Cornell Cooperative Extension Hosting
Garden Sand Casting Workshop!

Ferndale NY, - August 6th at 10am Cornell Cooperative Extension Sullivan County will be hosting their second “Art in the Garden Workshop” taught by Susan Dollard. Susan is a local artist and art teacher, whose art work has been exhibited in Sullivan and Orange County. She and her husband, Tim, own a studio and gallery called “Off the Beaten Path”, in Smallwood, NY.

The Sand Casting workshop is fun for all ages, and an especially great summer activity for children. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Learn how to embed or make imprints of your favorite found objects such as leaves, shells, pebbles, sticks, tiles or even broken pieces of glass and pottery. Be as imaginative as you’d like and create a unique piece of art for your home and garden.

This program is made possible with funds from the 2011 Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts, administered by Delaware Valley Arts Alliance. It will be held at Cornell Cooperative Extension at 64 Ferndale Loomis Rd., Liberty, N.Y. on August 6th, 2011 at 10:00- 12:00.

The workshop will cost $40.00 per person which includes all casting supplies and materials. Preregistration and payment are a must to hold a spot in this popular class. Call Susan Dollard at 845-292-5250 for more information.
