East Greenwich Art Club meeting – Local award-winning artist Don Mong will give a presentation “Tea Bag Art.” In 1904, tea bags were invented in the U.S.A. Since then, tea bags have been part of our daily life. In today’s environmentally conscious world, used tea bags can be recycled to create art pieces. They can open up to become a great small canvas. Mong will display some of his pieces and help participants create unique gifts from a bag. The bags can be mounted on note or greeting card stock. They can depict any kind of design using watercolors or acrylic paint. Refreshments will be served. From 7 to 9 p.m., at United Methodist Church, 1558 South County Trail, EG. It is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the club at: [email protected] , or at the website:
