What's the deal?
Tra' Slaughter (who was nominated for Pop Shop's "best painter" award) has put together another mixed media workshop for us which just might even be funkier than the last one! In "Color and the Shape" attendees will be creating abstract works utilizing hand made materials provided by the artist, himself. These materials will include: spray painted paper, multi-layered canvas, parts of old paintings, scissors, glue and other adhesives. Attendees will use these tools and materials to create their very own masterpiece!
Meet Our Expert: Tra' Slaughter
Tra' is a self-taught artist, from the lovely south-east coast of Texas, continuously learning and evolving his art as he goes through life. He finds beauty in the regular... regular people, doing regular things. From a stranger sitting at a bus-stop, to his daughter playing, to his pets lounging in a window sill. Beauty is everywhere. Finding it is all in how you look at it. There is always something interesting and beautiful in the most simple of actions and activities... and finding it and showing that to people through his eyes, is his mission. To show people the beauty in the everyday around them. To show that regardless of what it is, there is beauty everywhere in everything. Check out his work at www.traslaughter.com
