Event description


Class Description

This class is based on using any type of container (that would normally be tossed out or recycled) and upcycling it into art work. Please bring cardboard boxes from snacks, washed and properly cleaned plastic containers from perishable foods, plastic silverware, ribbon, paper towel rolls, chip bags and anything else you would typically throw away. One person's junk is another person's treasure!

Instructor Bio


Ink is an artist hailing from Maine. Her roots of public painting began from graffitiing on walls, under bridges and abandoned buildings. She started with just a little “toy” name that complimented her love of hip-hop. From that love erupted her creative mind to branch out more; to follow her true calling, her passion and make her tools be an extension of self. Her art is more than just an expression and creative outlet, to her it is another form of entrainment. She tries to capture environmental dilemas, beauty, humor, everyday life and emotions to help people see life in her perspective.
