Wednesday, April 5, 6 p.m.—RUTLAND—Chaffee Art Center holds a workshop with local artist/muralist Kathryn Palmer-Wiegers, Wednesday, April 5, 6-9 p.m. The workshop, Paint Your Own Mini-mural, will use the techniques of Palmer-Wiegers. She is responsible for several Rutland murals, including “Batman” on the Griffin Building, and the recently installed “Elephant” located near the entrance to the bus garage on West Street. There are several others, including one on the side of the Rutland Co-op building on Wales Street, one on Center Street, and two on Merchants Row. Her murals, along with those of several other artists, are a fun reason to walk around Rutland, seeking out all of the wall-art.
This arts evening will result in a mobile mural, mounted on foam core, or framed traditional. All skill levels are welcome. Materials are provided in the cost of $40 for non-members, or $35 for members.
Chaffee Art Center is located at 16 S. Main St., Rutland. To sign up for the workshop, call 802-775-0356 or visit chaffeeartcenter.org.

The murals created by Kathryn Palmer-Wiegers are very life-like, seeming to allow the viewer an inside look at the many walls and building on which they appear.
