Open Studio From Home:
Julie Mehretu

SAT, Apr 10, 2021
11–11:40 am

Online, via Zoom

Families with kids of all ages

You are invited to Open Studio From Home, free weekly online art classes with Whitney educators! Participants will experiment, create, and learn together with at-home art materials.  

Julie Mehretu makes large-scale artworks that are built up through layers of paint, pencil, pen, and ink. She takes her visual vocabulary from maps, urban planning grids, and architectural forms. These are combined to make dynamic works that blur the line between abstraction and figuration.

Together, we will gather unique materials from around our homes. Then, we will create our own layered compositions!

Materials:

  • Clear plastic wrap, sheets of tracing paper, or clear acetate
  • Sharpie markers 
  • Masking tape
  • Optional:
    • Acrylic paint
    • Nail polish

This event will have automated closed captions through Zoom. Live captioning is available for public programs and events upon request with seven business days advance notice. We will make every effort to provide accommodation for requests made outside of that window of time. To place a request, please contact us at accessfeedback@whitney.org or (646) 666-5574 (voice). Relay and voice calls welcome.
