LUNCH WITH BOOKS LIVESTREAM: In the Artist's Studio with Cheryl Ryan Harshman

September 22, 2020
12:00pm - 1:00pm

Calendar Event Photo

Cheryl will take us on a tour of her studio, where she paints, quilts, and prints--sometimes all at the same time. The prints she makes are called "clay monoprints," and use a different method. Unlike stamping (think rubber stamps) she uses a transfer method with colored clay on paper or a fabric called Reemay. No paint or ink is used. Because this art is created with clay, it is a muddy, watery process, so Cheryl warns us not to expect a tidy studio!

This program will be available to watch live on Facebook Live, on YouTube, and on the OCPL website's LWB Livestream page. Log into your Facebook or YouTube account to leave questions for our Cheryl in the comments box. Cheryl will answer them during the program! 

Join us for a hands-on, messy, and fun demonstration of a unique art form. The demo will include a look at Cheryl's "COVID Quartet," pictured below.
