How do artists represent closeness, connection, and community? In this session, AFAM educator and artist Natalie Beall will introduce works by a range of self-taught artists, including Inez Nathaniel Walker, who frequently explore themes of friendship and proximity in their art. Prompts for looking and drawing will be shared throughout the evening, and participants will be invited to share their work.
