The Engraver & the Painter: David & Sean

Pew pew pew!! Zap! Join David Clayton for a two-hour hour laser engraving session at the Department of Making + Doing, a collaborative workspace shared by four of Philadelphia’s finest fabrication studios. Oh, and also… LASERS!!!

Then receive a one-on-one art lesson with local artist Sean Martorana. The variety of techniques and materials that Sean uses to create his custom murals, painting, and sketches is staggering…from customized panes of repurposed glass to darkly deco Adirondack chairs. You’ll head down to Indy Hall and work on your own painting and brush up on all the ways you can transform art from a passion project into a sustainable livelihood.

But wait… There’s more!
