Artistic Weekend

Hamilton (OH) – Same time, different venues. Different audiences, same positive outcomes.

We put the “creative” in the Fitton Center for Creative Arts this past weekend, inspiring a wide variety of artmakers at two different events.

All at no cost for attendees.

On site, instructor Chrissy Collopy hosted a collage-making workshop May 4 as part of her first-of-its-kind artist-in-residence program in partnership with SOS ART.

The sold-out You Are NOT What You Eat workshop at the Fitton Center focused on art related to food. Specifically, food insecurity.

Guests learned about the art of collage before clipping, arranging, pasting and mounting their own work. Their pieces will be shown in conjunction with Collopy’s related still-life paintings on World Hunger Day, May 28, at the Mount Auburn Presbyterian Church (103 William Howard Taft Road, Cincinnati, Ohio 45219).


The exhibition also appears in the Fitton Center Community Gallery in June at a date to be announced.


Meanwhile, just a few miles away, Fitton Center Education Director Kate Rowekamp – with an assist from her mom and sister – set up shop for guests attending the One Village Community Day and Health Fair at new Miami High School. More than 250 people stopped by the booth, including scores of children who had lots of fun getting their hands gooey as they learned to create their own colorful slime.


Fitton Center artists and instructors will be out in the community again from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 11, at the West Chester Farmer’s market. Guests can make a cool lion craft with paper, markers and ribbon.

Enjoy some pictures from the weekend events in the gallery below.


The Fitton Center for Creative Arts is located at 101 S. Monument Avenue on the Riverfront in downtown Hamilton, Ohio.
