SEARSPORT – Penobscot Marine Museum presents the art of shadowbox making workshop from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Oct. 9. Participants will have an opportunity to examine the museum’s current exhibit of contemporary marine shadowboxes, “Inside the Box: The Art of Anne-Emmanuelle Marpeau,” for inspiration and ideas.
Shadowboxes, also known as dioramas, are artistic scenes or tableaux presented within a glass-fronted or open box. A shadowbox can tell a story, honor a person or event, focus on a theme, or present a pure abstraction. Workshop participants will create a unique diorama using a variety of techniques and materials including collage, assemblage, sculpture, painting, lettering and more. A collection of objects and materials will be provided, and participants may bring materials of their own. Participants may also bring an empty box or purchase one from the museum for a minimal fee.
The workshop will be led by the museum’s education director, Betty Schopmeyer, and program and outreach coordinator, Cathy Melio. Cost of the workshop is $30, with a 10% discount for museum members. All levels of art experience are welcome. For more information or to register, email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 207-548-2529.
