Celebrate the Season: Creating Scratchboard Art with Toki Oshima
June 5 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm$15 – $40
Join artist Toki Oshima at The Maine Organic Marketplace for an evening of art and inspiration.
Her delightful artwork has become a cherished part of MOFGA’s quarterly newspaper, The Maine Organic Farmer & Gardener (The MOF&G), and she won the 2016 Common Ground Country Fair artwork contest for her colorful chard piece. Her work is instilled with an appreciation for nature and simple joys — gardening, farming and dancing.
Oshima will debut new and vibrant 11-by-14-inch art prints at this event. This event is being offered on a sliding scale from $15 to $40. A $40 ticket price will include a print of your choice.
She will share about her life, art and relationship with MOFGA.
During the craft time of the event participants will create their own scratchboard illustration using ink and a pointed nib. We will have a variety of sizes of boards for you to choose from, and simple templates of ideas if you would like help coming up with subject matter. You’ll go home with a finished board to celebrate the return of the growing season.
Stay afterwards to share, shop and have your new Toki Art poster or 2016 chard poster signed by the artist. All posters will be available for sale at the store during the workshop.
