You are invited to come to our next arts workshop, when we focus on the life and legacy of Abstract Expressionist painter Joan Mitchell. This will be a lecture-workshop on Joan Mitchell, who was born in Chicago and studied at the Art Institute of Chicago. We will discuss the principles of abstraction and Expressionism in painting and music and make an abstract drawing in charcoal or paper cutouts.
Bring your musical instruments, your poetry, your art supplies! These workshops are interactive and multidisciplinary. We have supplies and equipment on hand that workshop participants can use -- including pencils, pens, paint, a piano, other musical instruments.
