Area resident Anjuar Calderone paints a silhouetted cutout self-portrait Friday during a reception for students and their families following LoCo Art’s week-long mixed media arts residency taught by Columbus artist educator Duarte Brown at Union Station, 613 Hamilton St. Students learned new artistic techniques, including airbrushing and wood burning, in the free workshop. LoCo Art also offers another free workshop Sept. 25-27 for youths ages 7-14 when Indiana stunt artist Sam Bartlett offers a weekend of storytelling and visual arts.
