Digital Drink + Draw: Narrative and Text

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

How do self-taught artists use letters, words, and text to give texture, form, and narrative to their artworks? In this session, AFAM educator and artist Natalie Beall will explore the inventive relationships between language and image in the works of Sister Gertrude Morgan, Charles Steffen, and others. Prompts for looking and drawing will be shared throughout the evening, and participants will be invited to share their work.
