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, February 7, 2024, experiment with Trina Michelle Robinson’s intaglio works on handmade paper. Robinson documents her labor intensive papermaking process, which are sourced specifically from Black owned farms in North Carolina. After learning about her work, we will go over the basics of printmaking and create our own prints, inspired by personal stories and memories.
