Virtual Event: PECO Family Jams – Shaving Cream Marbled Paper

Sunday, January 10th 2021

12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens is an explosion of shapes and colors. People often ask if creator Isaiah Zagar planned how the many colors and shapes would come together in PMG. Isaiah prefers to allow chance, inspiration, and improvisation to guide his mosaic work. When he reaches into his bucket of broken tiles, whichever tile he grabs, it is the right tile. The marbled paper we will make today, using shaving cream and food coloring, is inspired by Isaiah’s artistic process. You never know what you’re going to get but you will be delighted when you see it. After you create your shaving cream marbled paper, join us for a virtual exploration of how Isaiah uses chance in his mosaics at PMG.
