Join Intuit on the third Thursday of the month for Art After Work, a free series of facilitated art-making workshops inspired by outsider and self-taught art and artists from the museum’s collections and exhibitions. This month, teaching artist and museum educator Paulina Lopez will lead a discussion and facilitate a workshop inspired by artist Hiroyuki Doi. In the virtual workshop, participants will construct a sketchbook and practice a variety of mindful drawing exercises.
- Pens or markers
- 10+ sheets of paper, cut to the same size (any dimension)
- Hole puncher
- Thread, yarn or floss
- Binder clips or paper clips
- 2 sheets of decorative paper, cut to the same size (for a book cover)
Art After Work is for everyone, including beginners and people who say they “are not artists.” We can all be artists! It is a guided workshop, and instruction will begin at 5 p.m. central.
Closed captions will be available at the virtual program. Please contact Paula Santos at email@example.com with questions related to accessibility accommodations.
Art After Work is free to join! To show your support to Intuit, please consider the pay-what-you-can option when you complete your reservation. Your contributions help ensure the sustainability of our public programs and support guest lecturers and teaching artists.
Two hours before the event, Intuit will email the Zoom link to those who RSVP on Eventbrite. Please check your junk folder; unfortunately, these emails are sent there sometimes.
