Art: History and Hands On - Cave Painting Workshop

Cave painting creation Event Type: Library-sponsored Adult Event
Date: 7/7/2018
Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Time: 7:00 PM
 Local artist and gallery-owner Margret Baldwin will host a five-week series of art history film screenings at the Blue Hill Public Library, each paired with an optional, related hands-on workshop the following day.

The July 6th film will be "Cave of Forgotten Dreams," (2010) directed by Werner Herzog. The film documents the Chauvet caves of Southern France and captures the oldest known pictorial creations of humanity.

Attendees of the film may register for a corresponding art workshop on Saturday July 7th, where participants will create their own cave paintings using plaster and charcoal.

Margret is a certified art instructor with 25 years in the public school system and private teaching experience. She expanded her exposure to art and artists through her curatorial experience during eight years of employment at the Blue Hill Public Library. She has exhibited widely and in the summer runs her neighborhood “Little Gallery” in Surry.

These events are sponsored by the library and supported the Friends of the Library. For more information, contact Hannah at the library at or 374-5515.
