Class / Workshop | Drawing History
A Hands-on Virtual Workshop
Saturday, January 23, 2021, 11 am–1 pm
Artist/Instructor: Caitlin Cass
Fee: $24 for members/ $34 for non-yet members
In this workshop, we will explore what a difference a day can make through visual storytelling. Beginning with a photograph or news clipping, participants will work through ideation exercises to develop a one-page visual narrative. Come ready to write, draw, and watercolor.
Caitlin Cass makes comics and gallery installations about failing systems and irrational hope. Her exhibition Women's Work: Suffrage Movements 1848-1965 (on view through January 31st) celebrates the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment and confronts racism within suffrage history. Her comics and cartoons have appeared in The New Yorker, the Lily, and The Public. She was also a 2018 NYSCA/ NYFA Artist Fellow in Fiction. Caitlin lives and works in Buffalo and teaches Art at Buffalo Seminary.
