Eastport Arts Center’s Summer Workshop Series continues with a workshop for all ages in plant prints with Sara Myrick on Tuesday, July 30 from noon-2 pm. Participants will explore a variety of print possibilities using organic materials, paint, and printmaking on a small muslin bag to bring home. Participants are also welcome to bring their own print materials and/or additional fabric items to print.
Myrick teaches art full-time for grades K-12 in the Eastport schools, and is owner of Coastal Whims, a home-based art business celebrating her love of nature and handcrafting.
In her artistic practice, Myrick is a wild chameleon, always trying something new, and her workshops and projects have ranged from upcycling—Chihuly-style plastic ornaments and altered books— to print-making, whether on fabric or paper—to jewelry-making, using a wide array of found and handmade objects. In addition to her teaching gig, she leads many workshops at both EAC and Eastport’s Peavey Library.
Workshop fee is $10; all materials are included and space is limited. To participate, please preregister with Alison Brennan at (207) 454-8822 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, please note: youth may arrive early (11:30 am) to receive a free lunch through Eastport’s Summer Lunch Program.
The Eastport Arts Center is at 36 Washington Street, Eastport, and at eastportartscenter.org, and is handicapped-accessible. EAC workshops are partially funded by the Maine Community Foundation’s Belvedere Handcrafts Grant; a sliding scale for fees is available by request.
