Art in the Garden Day: The Art Bus Project at QBG

Saturday, September 22, 2018, 12:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Included with Garden admission

The Art Bus Project is on a mobile mission to bring art to Flushing, Queens! Included with Garden admission. Walk-ins welcome upon availability.

Register for a free 15-minute tour of the Art Bus and stop by to view and make art at these workshops:

  • Seeing Yourself (30 min): 12:15 – 12:45 PM

    • Explore art in a way that leads to self-expression and empowerment — and walk away with a piece of art that’s completely and uniquely yours! After a brief review of artists across eras and styles — from Vincent van Gogh’s Impressionism through the Factory days of Andy Warhol’s Popism — participants will be shown how to use various techniques and mediums to create self portraits. Find your inner artist — and have fun doing it!

  • Creative workshop, Making Impressions: Magical Art (30 min): 1:00 – 1:30 PM

    • Learn how to make art using materials from your own house and yard! Create your own ink blots and botanical impressions with items like saran wrap, packing tape, old magazines and leaves. You’ll be blown away by not only the ease and simplicity of these take-home exercises, but also by the amazing art you can produce!

  • Inside the New KHEM Experience (30 min): 1:45 – 2:15 PM

    • Screening of “The New KHEM Experience” followed by Q&A with artist, KHEM. “The New KHEM experience is series of eight short films created with kinetic typography, minimal illustrations, and rich watercolor paintings, that turn the time and space between the many screens of our everyday life into a dynamic art show. Watch a show about a spiritual close encounter that drove one young man to go on life-changing, surreal and otherworldly trip, followed by a Q&A with its creator.

  • Creative workshop, Tying Together (15 min): 3:15 – 3:30 PM

    • Create wearable art with just your fingers and a piece of yarn! Using the Native American technique of finger weaving, learn how to make scarves, headbands, bracelets and more. Can be done alone or with friends!

Spend the day at the Garden! This drop-in event is part of Art in the Garden Day, which also includes an Activity Table from 12 to 4pm and a Flower Press Workshop (registration required) from 2 to 4pm.
