Digital Drink + Draw: Utopias

**Registration for this program is now at capacity. To join the waitlist, please submit your name and email through the Eventbrite ticket page.**

Unwind and find inspiration in self-taught art! Drink, draw, and connect virtually with AFAM’s Education staff and other creatives. 

How do artists represent utopian thinking and their desires for a more creative, equitable, and just world? In this session, AFAM educator and artist Natalie Beall will introduce the fantastic flying machines of Charles Dellschau, transcendent Shaker Gift Drawings, and other visionary works by self-taught artists. Prompts for looking and drawing will be shared throughout the evening, and participants will be invited to share their work.

Space is limited; advance registration is required. Please consider making a donation when you register to support our ongoing virtual programming.
