"Imagine" Art Workshop by Artist Theron Cook

Collectible Designer Figurine Art Toy Painting Workshop DIY Art for kids & Adults.

For the young to old, highly skilled to first-timers, each “Imagine figurine” is a blank 3D canvas, ready for scribbling, painting, dressing up, and designing into whatever your imagination desires. The essence of creation lies within. “Imagine" figurine art workshop is a one -of -a-kind experience that lets you customize your own art toy that represents where your from! The "Imagine" figurine is a resin plastic character created to symbolize the Reading PA pride and Spirit with familiar elements, landmarks, of Reading like the "Pagoda" incorporated within the toy character.


The motivation behind this project is to inspire educate and encourage the community to take pride in where they're from by using art as a bridge between cultural gaps of the city of Reading. The niche community that lacks culture, resources, opportunities, support, inspiration, and communication. Through art, we have the ability not only to beautify and enhance people's lives and environments, but also to bring them together, to incite dialogue, to produce work that acts as a bridge between individuals, that paves the way for us to communicate with one another, to open up and share our experiences. Art affirms our existence. But at the same time, it's also about relationships and about promoting some sense of unity and understanding among us all.

Think of art as a discussion starter, as a means of reaching out to other people and affecting their lives, of offering unique perspective, of helping others to see things in new and different ways. Art breaks down barriers. It brings people together. It gives us permission to reach out to one another and it makes reaching out easier. Art sometimes even allows us to confront or broach difficult or sensitive subjects with total strangers because it's there to break the ice first. It’s about making a difference, a contribution that works to everyone's advantage.


All participants will leave the workshop with a complete unique one of a kind 3D piece of art that reflects their pride of where they're from. The completed art will be a custom collectible Designer Figurine Art Toy that can be displayed in your home or anywhere desired. Reminding you "Don't Quit" on the things that makes you "You".
