LOOK/DRAW/WRITE WORKSHOPS WITH ROBERTA FALLON, FLORA WARD, AND ILANA NAPOLI

April 22 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Join Roberta Fallon, Flora Ward, and Ilana Napoli of the Artblog for a series of four workshops at Taller Puertorriqueño.

We’ll do creative exercises that show hanging out with art can be fun! First we’ll spend some time in the gallery looking at, discussing, and drawing the art, and then we’ll wrap up by writing short haiku poems that will be published on the Artblog website.

The first two workshops will focus on Roxana Pérez-Méndez’s exhibition, Quien a buen árbol se arrima, while the second two will focus on the work of Michelle Ortiz, Quizás Mañana, both on view in the gallery at Taller Puertorriqueño.

All ages /// No experience necessary /// Light refreshments provided

Artblog believes that the discussion of art, centered on beauty, truth, value, and power, makes the world a better place.

Artblog is an independent online publication that fosters dialog and community through commentary and discussion about art and culture. They focus primarily on the Philadelphia region and educate our community about the importance of art to civil society. Artblog raises the profile of marginalized artists—the young, minorities and women—who have been left out of the conversation. They do all this through their online publication and with programs in the community.
