julias studio

This workshop is for teens entering grades 8-12. 

Experiment with different drawing materials and learn new mark-making techniques, with artist sophia bartholomew. Together we will follow a series of playful drawing exercises, exploring improvised words, shapes and images to create a new work of art. At the end of the workshop, everyone will take home their own poster-sized artwork, created through a process that combines drawing and collage.

sophia bartholomew (they/them) is a trans non-binary femme, working with text and textiles, photography and performance, ceramics and video. Drawing experiments have long-been the foundation of their interdisciplinary art practice, and in 2018 they published “Screen Ecologies” a book of ink drawings co-created with Emma Hicks and Erica Wilk. 

Registration is required and can be done online or in person. 
Registration opens on Friday, June 14th.

Check out more Julia's Studio workshops here.
