Drawing from Masks

A Creative Cross-Cultural Exploration

Saturday, July 11, 2015
11:00 AM–6:00 PM

Delve into the exhibition Becoming Another: The Power of Masks, by creatively exploring masks from across the northern hemisphere. Learn about the cultures, stories, and spiritual practices represented by the masks during an exhibition tour and then make a detailed sketch of your preferred mask in the galleries. Guided by artist Carmen Mensink, develop your sketch into an original work of art with paint, collage, and other mixed media, to express your personal connection to the beauty and transformative power of masks. No previous experience necessary. All materials included.
