Miniature Art: Tiny Treasures with Manuel Rivera
Thursday, July 27, 2023
$48 members, $60 non-members
A workshop for the small art enthusiast, this hands-on class will focus on creating some staples of NYC in miniature form.
From hydrants to telephone booths, and a few in between.
You will have the opportunity to take home a tiny creation with all the inner workings of a bite size city.
Manny is a mixed media artist raised in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
He is now deeply rooted in the Syracuse area and has an affinity for bringing the nostalgic grit of NYC to many of his miniature creations. Making miniatures is an intricate artform, but many might be surprised to learn that everyday objects can be used to make little masterpieces.
Between collecting leftovers from his children’s toys and scouring the craft store aisles, Manny’s been able to create tiny worlds with endless possibilities. The real joy is in others learning that they can, too.
A true, family man, most of his art pieces have a hidden touch from one of his two young children who are usually creating right beside him.
