Event Details

Join us fo an upcoming Brown Bag Lunch session at PZ! Please join us on Wednesday, October 31, 12:30pm-2:00pm in the Nelson conference room (Longfellow #429) for Living the Collage Life: How the Principles of Collage are Relevant to Education and to Every Day Modern Life, a Brown Bag Lunch session with visiting artist and educator, Hanoch Piven. A little about this session:
 
"In the words of Paul Valery, “To see is to forget the name of that which we are looking at.” Making a collage with everyday objects is an insightful example of a playful, creative, and educational space. In this hands-on experience, we will experiment with learning to see various, emerging means of communication in discarded bits and pieces of "junk"."
