Create some art inspired by the artists of Bay Area Now 9 in this series of eight stand-alone, drop-in art workshops for participants of all ages, led by YBCA Teaching Artist Blanca Estela Rodríguez. Art materials will be provided, and participants will be able to take their artwork home as a souvenir. Each workshop will feature a different artist highlighted in the BAN9 exhibition at YBCA, and explore each artist’s practice and unique art-making method.
On Wednesday, March 13, 2024, revisit personal experiences and/or cultural memories to create a mixed-media collage that evokes your personal journey. This activity is inspired by BAN9 artist Shirin Towfiq’s work, drawn from her personal experiences as a second-generation immigrant, and incorporating cultural memories, family histories and migration.
