Saturday, March 10, 2018, 1:30–4 pm

On select Saturdays and Sundays a unique still life will be designed by creative community members.  Participants drop-in and create in their own media influenced by the one of a kind still life. The still life will only be on display during the workshop hours. Participants bring their own supplies to sketch, draw, paint, write poetry, and or photograph the still life. No instructor will be teaching.  This is a creative platform to be inspired by.  Still Life workshops are 2 ½ hours in length, intended for youth 12 and older, families, college students, and creative individuals.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
