Micrography – Greek for “little writing” – is an old Jewish art practice of drawing visual patterns from lines of tiny written words. We are going to learn all the skills to do it and make art with letters. A simple text will be provided to work from, so come and do something you never thought could be art!
Participants are expected to bring in a printed copy meaningful song lyrics to one song of their choice which will become the basis of the art.
