    Saturday 9/4, all day 
    Come visit the Studio Workshop to learn about the art and life of Wassily Kandinsky with visiting Artist Kelsey Joyce. Wassily Kandinsky was a Russian artist whose vibrant abstract paintings paved the way for Non-Objective Art. Each visitor will be introduced to abstract art, expressionism, and color theory when helping to create "Kandinsky paper leaves" for a giant community art tree in our studio. Come join in on the fun on September 4th to create art influenced by one of the founders of abstract painting!
