Two events will be held today at The Canvas Community Art Studio and Gallery.
The first is a pay-as-you-can workshop in which participants will make reusable bags out of recycled newspapers. Donations will be accepted for the workshop or donate bags for gallery use. The workshop will begin at 1 p.m. and end at 3 p.m.
Storyteller Tom Cosgrove will share "Nearly Normal Alaskan Tales" from 3 to 4 p.m. His tales are evidence that life in Alaska is more than deep snow and wild animals. Sometimes it's poignant, humorous and just plain odd. The pay-as-you-can performance is suggested for those ages 10 and up.
