2012 G40

"ReUsed/ReMixed" Painted Vinyl Album Workshop

Sunday April 29 kicked off the "ReUsed/ReMixed" Painted Vinyl Album Workshop at the G40 event space in Richmond, Virginia.  We had a great turnout of students who enthusiastically took on the challenge of creating their own design on an old 12" vinyl record.  PONSHOP co-owner, Gabriel Pons, walked the students from brainstorming ideas to applying their designs on the records using acrylic paint, paint pens, or spray paint and stencils.  Special thanks to Art Whino and RVA Magazine for organizing this year's G40 Summit and congratulations to all the people that came out to participate in this art workshop - good work!
