Canton’s Village Theater To Host Summer Art Workshops

The Village Theater at Cherry Hill

The Village Theater at Cherry Hill is pleased to announce the return of its in-person art workshops.  This summer, area residents 18 and older are invited to get creative and attend these hands-on artwork workshops: “Weaving Art Workshop” and “Cuba Watercolor Workshop.”

During the “Weaving Art Workshop,” which will be held on Wednesday, July 14, from 6-8 p.m., participants will spend a fun summer evening creating their own weaving project in The Village Theater’s beautiful Gallery@VT. Here they will enjoy a short-guided tour led by Village Theater art staff of the July 2021 exhibition, featuring works by The Ann Arbor Fiberarts Guild. After getting inspired by these fiberarts work, participants will make their very own weaving project, experimenting with texture and different yarn types. No experience is necessary to attend and all supplies/materials will be provided.  Register today here!

The “Cuba Watercolor Workshop,” which will be held on Wednesday, August 18, from 6-8 p.m., will enable participants to travel to Cuba via photographs and then learn the painting technique for creating a watercolor white mariposa.  Participants will be inspired by Jim Aho's and Jack Kenny's photographs from Cuba, which will be on display as The Village Theater’s August 2021 featured art gallery exhibit.  Next, participants will learn how to paint a white mariposa with a Cuban background landscape utilizing watercolors. Again, no experience necessary, and all supplies/materials will be provided. Register today here!
