Artful Journeys: Dorothy Gillespie-Inspired Paper Sculptures

Friday, March 27, 2020

2:00pm - 2:10pm

Looking for a fun, creative art project for your elementary or middle schooler? 

Join us for this virtual Artful Journeys class where we'll learn about local artist Dorothy Gillespie, whose work is featured in the current exhibition, Dorothy Gillespie: Still Enchanting Virginia's Blue Ridge. 

You'll learn to make your own paper sculptures inspired by Gillespie's work in this hands-on lesson!

If you'd like to join along as you watch, you'll need paper (any type), tape or glue, and a pen or pencil. Other options could include ribbon, aluminum foil, and more - anything that you can easily wrap and twist. Have fun!
