Build a Tiny House: Mixed Media Sculpture Workshop


With more of our time and focus at home right now, we hope you will join us for a fun and creative hands-on workshop - Build a Tiny House: Mixed Media Sculpture Workshop. This three-part series, with artist Marcie Wolf-Hubbard, will take place Thursdays, January 14, 21 & 28 6pm-7.30pm.

This is a FREE event, but space is limited and you must register in advance. Ages 12 and up.

About Marcie Wolf-Hubbard
´╗┐Marcie Wolf-Hubbard's colorful collages are about the feelings and memories attached to places she has been or to which she can imagine having gone. She mentally travels to distant locales and time travels to different eras. Each postcard in Wolf-Hubbard's work becomes a piece of a story that might have been; colors flow from her imaginings to breach the borders of the Mediterranean Sea or to bridges, roads and canals. The blur of colors and images suggests the speed of travel and the evanescence of the tourist's experience. Thus we are privileged to follow her into her personal time and space and to make it our own.

Marcie Wolf-Hubbard received her B.A. from the University of Maryland in Studio Art and studied

Fine Art and Illustration at the Maryland Institute, College of Art. Her paintings have been exhibited widely on the East Coast. She has illustrated for magazines and books and worked as a courtroom artist.

Marcie is an instructor at Glen Echo Park, Yellow Barn Studio and Smithsonian Associates. She also teaches art in her studio.

Marcie and her husband, David Hubbard, have collaborated on a children's book, The Shiny Shell, an eco-adventure book about a boy and a dolphin on a mission to save the oceans. They are currently working on a book of David's short stories and poems and Marcie's encaustic (hot wax) paintings, which have inspired David's writing. Poems From Within is the first book in the series.
