Get ready to build abstract forms and get messy! In this two-part workshop for ages 12-18, participants will use plaster cloth to build an abstract sculpture inspired by the work of artist Isamu Noguchi. Participants will spend time in the galleries looking and conversing about sculptures as well as time planning and building sculptures. Pack a lunch to eat outside if the weather permits. Advance registration is required.
Take a relaxing drive through Chatham County’s rolling hills and pastoral farmlands to visit 54 artists in 41 studios that dot the countryside.

Alejandro Arroyo owns the newest (and cleanest) lounge in New York City’s Lower East Side. His sister, Molly, has a nasty habit of writing graffiti on the back wall of the local police precinct. Officer Derek is a recent NYC transplant with something to prove. Lelly Santiago is a socially awkward college student who may have discovered that the Arroyo siblings’ late mother was one of the founders of hip-hop music. Two DJs/narrators spin the story in this hilariously heartfelt piece.
Rated PG-13. This play contains adult language and themes.
