ColorWheels with Maureen Duffy
Friday, July 16, 6 pm to 9 pm
Fleisher’s mobile art studio delivers creative experiences directly to sites throughout Philadelphia. The van is equipped with the tools and supplies needed for Fleisher’s teaching artists to guide community members in hands-on culturally inspired mini-workshops, collaborative public art projects, and art technique demonstrations. This activity will be led by Fleisher Faculty member Maureen Duffy.
In addition to the ColorWheels event, Fleisher is partnering with The Clay Studio who will be bringing Pottery Unplugged: Bicycle Powered Pottery Wheel, a program that runs on a people-powered pottery bike, affectionately called BIKELANGELO, to bring relaxed and mindful art-making directly to the public.
