Join us for a fun, interactive Family Art Workshop inspired by Mad. Sq. Art’s current exhibition, Red, Yellow and Blue by Orly Genger on Saturday, June 29, 2013, 10AM-12PM and 1PM-3PM.

Get a head start on your summer reading by creating your very own one-of-a-kind woven bookmark for your favorite book! Using simple materials like paper, pipe cleaners, and ribbons, we’ll explore basic techniques of weaving, color, and form, much like the woven waves and hills found in Orly Genger’s large-scale exhibition! Comprised of an astounding 1.4 million feet of hand-crocheted nautical rope, the exhibition will be on view through September 8, 2013.
