Event Details

Join Westchester Square Library and The Drawing Center for a special in-person discussion and art making workshop with teaching artist Ada Pilar Cruz.  This event will take place in person.

Participants will explore the works from the exhibition Joan Jonas: Animal, Vegetable, Mineral on view at The Drawing Center from March 6 to June 2. Jonas is one of the most experimental and significant voices in American art of the postwar period. Her drawings of animals and plants constitute the backbone of her video, performance, and sculpture practices and are drawn using various materials and methods.

Participants will look at the selection of works from the exhibition and then make their own animal drawings while experimenting with and using an assortment of mark making tools, from pencils and crayons, to erasers, markers, scratch boards and drawing with very long sticks.

Materials will be provided.
