Join artist and author Alisa Burke for an interactive event inspired by her book Canvas Remix. It will take place at the Seaside Public Library on April 24, 2010 from 2:30 to 4:30 in the community room. The event will include demonstrations of free writing, layering paint, and using graffiti on canvas in alternative ways.
Alisa Burke is a north coast local and Seaside High School graduate. She is a freelance painter and mixed media artist who studied fine art at Portland State University. With a background in painting and printmaking and a desire to explore and push materials, Alisa is always looking for new ways to break the rules and redefine art.
In addition to making art, Alisa teaches workshops nationwide and has appeared as a guest artist on the DIY Network show Craft Lab and Quilting Arts TV on PBS. Her first book Canvas Remix was a refreshing look at taking canvas way beyond the stretcher bar. Alisa's second book will be out in the spring of 2011. She can be reached at (www.alisaburke.com)
