Street Art
Aug 31 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

The author of The Guerilla Art Kit, Keri Smith, explains guerrilla art in her own words… “as any anonymous work (including but not limited to graffiti, signage, performance, additions, and decoration) installed, performed, or attached in public space, with the distinct purpose of affecting the world in a creative or thought-provoking way. (p. 11)”

I have always loved hiding (and finding) out that I’ve made around the communities in which I’ve lived. I’d like to share that joy with others as we make some simple crafts together. Painting rocks and creating Artist Trading Cards are just a couple of the projects we’ll make, along with some simple crafts from Keri Smith’s book, mentioned above. Many of these can be done at home with supplies you would already have on hand.

During the last 30-45 minutes of class we’ll go out into town to leave our creations! It’s so much fun to do this activity with others who see the value in brightening someone’s day in an unexpected way! Join me and fellow students in “taking our ‘art’ to the street of Bridgton!”

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Lizzie Millett was born in Waterford, Maine, in 1861. She and younger sister Hattie escaped from their troubled childhoods and, each in her own way, built successful lives. Lizzie’s struggles to achieve personal and professional success in “a man’s world” of business are struggles that, in some forms, continue for women today.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Spencer, after living forty years in downtown Boston, resides in South Waterford, Maine. His home is a former water-powered box mill on City Brook, where he writes at a desk perched above a breached split-granite dam. His avocations are writing, reading, gardening, and enjoying his wife’s fabulous cooking.
