Upcycle Workshop Description

Chicago-based street artist, Penny Pinch, will lead the class in creating two pieces of artwork from 100% free, found and donated materials. Each person will create a graffiti-style wheatpaste poster and a found object “painting”. Penny Pinch will discuss the value, importance and techniques of how to make art without spending money.

Materials at A Very Serious Gallery

Meet Penny Pinch

Penny Pinch is a Chicago-based street artist who has been active since 2012. He never spends money on the creation of his art, choosing to use only free, found, and repurposed materials. He has participated in many solo and group shows but his first love is street art (primarily focusing on wheatpaste posters and stickers). His murals and street pieces can be seen throughout the Midwest.


Art After Work is for everyone, including beginners and people who say they “are not artists.” We can all be artists! It is a guided workshop, and instruction will begin at 5 p.m. in the museum’s performance space.
