About the event

Vera’s Iron and Vine, a collective of local artists and artisans, will sponsor youth workshops during the week of spring break. Vera’s, located at 155 Front St. in downtown Farmington, encourages young people of all ages and experience to participate in learning and socializing at the gallery as part of their school vacation.

The workshops on Wednesday, April 17, will run from 10-11:30 and 12-1:30, and will be for youth ages 9 to 18. These workshops will be led by local artist Robin Lisherness, who creates collages from found objects, and Joanna Hopkins, retired art teacher from Skowhegan Area High School. The goal of the experience will be creating 3-dimensional art from plastic articles that would otherwise end up in a landfill. Hundreds of items such as jar lids, coffee cup covers, take-out containers, toothpaste caps and plastic forks will all be available for the artists.

There will be a maximum of 8 participants per class.

This workshop will also be a fundraiser for the Franklin County Animal Shelter. Participants will pay a $10 fee for the workshop, and then their finished product will be on display at the gallery and for sale to benefit the shelter. A participant may decide to keep their work for an additional $10, which will be donated to the shelter.

Please park in FREE/Municipal parking as this lot is shared by 3 businesses
