Artmaking from Home:
Lessons in Longing

SAT, June 27, 2020
3 pm

Online, via Zoom

Experiment with ordinary materials in new and creative ways with these online artmaking events designed for all ages. Each project explores artworks from the Whitney’s collection and invites participants to consider the relationship between artmaking and our domestic spaces. All events in this series are live, thirty-minute sessions taught by a Whitney educator. 

This workshop takes inspiration from works by Jennifer Packer and Felix Gonzalez-Torres to explore how queer desire destabilizes definitions and identities. We will consider the limits of what we can represent and explore how memory can guide us in celebrating love in any form.


  • Paper
  • Pencil, pen, markers, watercolors, or any other medium

Instructor: Tony Bluestone is an artist and educator in New York City.
