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 ChiChai Mateo. 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 January 3, 2024, experiment with color and texture by using foil, cardboard and an explosion of color to create a rectangular card. Inspired by BAN9 artist Craig Calderwood’s Summoners Cards, your card could be a reflection of your identity, a personal joke – or communicate an imagined world through visuals.
