THE BRONX - Visitors to a workshop in The Bronx this weekend got to use mud, beeswax and other substances from the environment as materials for an art project.

Wave Hill, a public garden and cultural center in the borough, is in the middle of its winter workspace program. During the winter months, the center enables 12 artists in total to work in a studio space.

These artists occasionally offer workshops for visitors to come in and learn the creative processes that they use.

One artist tells News 12 that she believes the workshops serve the purpose of showing people that it is easy to create art, you just have to try it.

The next workshop is set for next week at the Wave Hill Glyndor Gallery on 249th Street. The program is open for everyone ages 12 and up.
