Join Community Arts Training (CAT) Institute artists and educators from the Regional Arts Commission for a workshop that examines the social aspects of making art, D.I.Yard Signs. Participants will create one-of-a-kind yard signs that publicize personal ideas, exploring what it means to share Individual interests and perspectives with your neighbors and neighborhood visitors. Pre-creation discussion will address topics such as mass-produced messages vs. ideas that appear once from your personal space, working with or around standard design strategies and sign placement, and how the message is activated. Explore ideas of community partnership, interdisciplinary collaboration, and more.
