This session, hosted by local artists Renne Brock-Richmond and Jean Wyatt of the Sequim Humanities and Arts Alliance, will have a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, Brock-Richmond said.
It will be all about making “artist trading cards,” diminutive pieces of art like baseball cards, only they promote the local creative players who make them.
The card-making workshop will go from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday with art supplies provided, though participants are welcome to bring their own materials, too. Light refreshments will be served.
Artist trading cards, Brock-Richmond said, are handy — 2½ inches by 3½ inches — with art on both sides.
Saturday's get-together is “a great chance to experiment with different media,” she said.
“We had a fun time at our last workshop,” held in June at the MAC, with supplies donated by Colors of Sequim and Doodlebugs.
Participants also will have a chance to enter their work in “Small Art with Big Dreams: Artist Trading Cards,” the exhibit at the MAC through September. A second round of entries will be accepted for next month, and entry forms and details can be found at www.SequimArtsAlliance.org.
Artists with cards to enter are asked to bring them to the MAC between noon and 3 p.m. Aug. 31, along with a fee of $5 for each set of up to six entries. Each artist is welcome to submit up to 24 cards.
On Sept. 6 during the First Friday Art Walk, the MAC will host a free public reception for the “Small Art With Big Dreams” show; that party will go from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibit then will remain up through Sept. 28.
