Calling all cat lovers!
Looking for a fun and creative evening? Create-A-Craft hosts a special adults-only Collage-A-Cat class with local collage artist Perris Mackey from 7 to 9 p.m. this Friday, July 21. Working with Mackey, participants will create an original cat-themed collage using an official “Collage-A-Cat” kit. Guests are encouraged to leave the kids at home and bring your favorite adult beverage for a fun-filled night of art-making.
“I will help guide the guests through my artistic process to ensure that they will leave the workshop with an original work of art that they are prrrr-oud of,” says Mackey. “Guests are welcome to bring their favorite bottle or adult drink of choice. However, we always encourage our guests to drink responsibly. This is a celebration and experience we want them to take home and show their kids and or family.”
Mackey’s pop culture-themed artwork has been exhibited at events and venues such as Ingenuity Fest, 78th Street Studios, the Waterloo Arts Fest, Wizard World Cleveland, Cleveland Bazaar, the Beachland’s Rockin’ Flea, Walkabout Tremont, Oddmall (Akron/Canton), Stella’s Art Gallery in Mentor and more. A self-taught artist, Mackey had little interest in art classes in high school. He credits his initial inspiration to watching the film Exit Through the Gift Shop, a documentary showcasing contemporary street artists, such as Banksy, Shepard Fairey, Space Invader and the polarizing Mr. Brainwash.
