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 17, 2024, inspired by the yōkai (supernatural beings and spirits) of Japanese folklore, participants will make their own yōkai out of model magic. This workshop is inspired by the work of BAN9 artist Masako Miki, and her bright, fantastical soft sculptures and watercolors drawn from Japanese traditions.
