November 10, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Join teaching artists Pamela Moulton and Titi de Baccarat for a multi-generational art workshop on Saturday, November 10 between 11:00am and 3:00pm.  The artists will work with Adults, Children and Teens to create imaginary, surreal, multi-cultural houses to be suspended on an interactive papermache tree which will be kept on display at Portland Public Library and/or bring their creations home.

Pamela Moulton, currently resides in Maine after spending 23 years in France. A Pennsylvania-born, Franco-American artist, Pamela is sculptor and installation artist.  She received her bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont and Villa Arson, France. Pamela worked in New York as a set designer and art director while continuing to exhibit abroad as a fine artist. Motherhood brought her to Europe where she received her MFA from the Ecole Supérieure d’Art d’ Aix and studied choreography and education at IUFM Blois.

Titi de Baccarat is an artist who possesses many facets at once painter, sculptor, jeweler, clothing designer, and writer. Dedicated to justice in a hostile political context, he was forced to flee his country, Gabon, with only the wealth of his artistic ability. He has lived in Portland since February 2015. He believes that Art rehabilitates love, bringing together people of all countries, of all backgrounds, of all cultures, and all ethnicities. His upcoming work as a Printers Without Margins fellow will describe his experiences as an immigrant in the United States: his pain, fear, uncertainty, and his hope for his future here. “Immigration is not a color, it is pain and hope.”
