Local artist James Sullivan at the Green Tent this Sunday, Aug. 5

Using recycled materials to create art & awareness

Kids and adults are invited to make handmade paper at the Green Tent this Sunday. 

It will be wet and messy and fun! 

Artist James Sullivan is bringing tubs of homemade pulp, made from old junk mail, wrapping paper, lint, leaves & flower petals, seeds, and other odds and ends. You'll dip small screens into it and press the pulp into wonderful, one-of-a-kind sheets of paper.

The focus is on repurposing and reusing any local items close at hand. You don't need to buy things to be creative & have fun! 

James is primarily an abstract painter. He's done a lot of printmaking as well as craft and building projects that recycle/repurpose. See more examples of his work at https://www.facebook.com/pages/James-f-sullivan-studio/243096442380499.
