The Batavia Society of Artists is having a Virtual Hands-on Art Demonstration by artist Karen Crittenden at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 13th.

It is open to nonmembers for a $5 fee, please go to the society's Facebook page to sign up. Members will receive an email with Zoom meeting info.

Crittenden is a local mixed-media artist and photographer who owns and operates a niche craft store -- Karen's Yarn Paper Scissors at 550 E. Main St. in Batavia.

She teaches there and offers a variety of lessons. She is a lifelong artist, learner and enjoys sharing what she does with others.

  • Scissors or a craft knife;
  • Magazines with your images pre-chosen;

  • Liquid white glue and a glue stick;
  • Acrylic paint -- any kind, three colors, whether you mix them or have, your choice;
  • Substrate to put all your treasures onto -- (I will be working on a cereal box side.) (The Dollar Tree store has 8x10 canvas boards, which will work.);
  • Paper towels or an old damp rag for your hands;
  • Old paint brush any size;
  • Newspaper or brown paper to cover your work area.
