Artist Workshops for the Connections Project 2018: A Mosaic of the Keys We invite YOU to CONNECT!

Join us for the Arts Council’s annual Connections Project. Our Mosaic of the Keys provides 400 free 6 x 6 inch blank canvases for Monroe artists and community members to create their own unique piece of art. We offer free workshops throughout the Keys to assist those that may need guidance and materials. Each workshop is led by a professional local artist and supplies will be provided. 

FREE Workshop times and venues are:

Monday, January 8th at 6:00 PM – Big Pine Key – Artists in Paradise Gallery, Winn Dixie Plaza. RSVP: 305-304-6005

Tuesday, January 9th at 1:00 PM -- Key Largo Library - Community Room -
RSVP: 305-295-4369

Thursday, January 11th at 5:00 PM – Key West - Stone Soup Gallery – 802 White St.
RSVP: 305-296-2080

Then we will collect, assemble and exhibit the 400 canvases as one large mosaic. We travel to six Keys’ locations and celebrate at each venue with an opening reception. Canvases are due back at the Arts Council on January 26th. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to create a small piece of artwork that will be displayed throughout the Keys.
In May, we will disassemble the mosaic and each canvas is shipped to our eagerly awaiting collectors. For a $50 or $125 donation you too can join the Connections Project and receive one of these masterpieces to start or add to your own collection.
