CreativiTea with Tom Thoune

Explore the creative process with one of Charlotte's favorite artists, Tom Thoune!

Workshop Description

Come and be the first to experience Arts+’s new NoDa studio, The Bridge, with this series of free adult workshops! This series of visual art workshops will be instructed by local artist Tom Thoune who specializes in public art, installation, and mixed media. Participants will explore sculpture with Tufa (a lightweight faux concrete) applied over a metal armature with various surface treatments including: carving, painting, mosaic and grout. These workshops will also experiment with found object surface embellishment. The work created will be intended and appropriate for outdoor display.

Cost is free but pre-registration is required. Free hot and iced tea will be served. Bring your own bag lunch (microwave is available).

Participants can register for all 3 workshops and work through the series on a project(s) or participants can sign up for a single workshop. Each workshop will have a small takeaway component in the medium we focus on that day plus an opportunity to work on a large collaborative piece designed by Tom Thoune.
