How can text strengthen the message that you seek to convey? Teens ages 13 -18 are invited to come and create their own protest signs and learn about styles of calligraphy, textography and letterform from artist and activist, Henry Luke. Materials to create are provided, but teens should come with something in mind that they want to say and will be guided in how to think about visually communicating their own message through text. Free, but registration requested; spots limited to 12 per workshop.



Saturday, August 26, 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. MARKED URGENT: Art for processing and responding to challenging times

Join interdisciplinary artist, writer and educator, Beverly Naidus as she leads participants through the process of making art for social change. Emphasis will be placed on how we process the current state of the world; how we personally are responding to climate change, racism, xenophobia, misogyny, homophobia, fascism and more, and how our art can encourage constructive actions that emerge from the collective. Participants are encouraged to develop their own stories, images, texts, sounds, gestures and projects. All levels of art experience welcome.
