Artmaking From Home:
The Power of Pattern

SAT, Apr 25, 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. 

Taking inspiration from works by Rosie Lee Tompkins and Miriam Schapiro, we will cut, tear, and arrange paper or fabric to model a pattern inspired by an object in your home. We will explore ways to use shape, repetition, and collage to focus our energy and activate the spiritual quotient in artmaking.
