Tang at Home Studio: Creative Flow Illustrations

A black printed paper with symmetrical, abstract, white images of a person bending over to touch the ground and two animal-like figures standing on rollerblades. Various text disrupts the symmetry by filling in the space around the figure.

Join us on Saturday, April 10, at 11:00 AM, for Tang at Home Studio: Creative Flow Illustrations. Did you know comic books can inspire art? We will take a close look at posters created by the Chicago Imagists, a group of Chicago artists known for their colorful artworks, which were inspired by comics, flea market finds, and popular culture. After looking at and learning about their art and process, we will create our own illustrations inspired by objects around the house, from today’s popular culture and from our own imaginations.

Hosted by Sunny Ra, The Laurie M. Tisch Educator for K-12 and Community Programs, and her team of Skidmore student interns, these sessions are geared toward children ages 5 to 12 accompanied by a parent or guardian. This hour-long live session will focus on exploring and sharing our thoughts about the artwork, learning more about the artist and then making our own inspired work! 

Before Saturday’s live event, check out this high-definition image of the artwork.
