Use found materials to transform jam jars, chocolate boxes, and tea tins into your own three dimensional memory collage. Then, collect your illustrations, ticket stubs, and dream recordings in your personal time capsule.
Guided by instructor Dounia Lomri from Green Art Workshop: a hands-on, eco-conscious program that brings teaching artists into Bay Area classrooms and community centers.
Dounia graduated from New York University with a degree in Studio Art and Psychology. Since then, she has lived in Guatemala, Puerto Rico, Chicago, Austin and is now happy to call the Bay Area home. Her passion is to foster a safe and creative space for people to make art. She teaches in domestic violence shelters, schools and community centers and loves to empower children and adults to think of themselves as artists. Dounia uses her environment and travels as inspiration to create her own work, using painting, photography and mixed media.
Experimental Drawing Workshop
with Sonja Hinrichsen
Sunday, February 5 from 1 - 4 pm
Open to all ages. Sliding scale: $5-$20
Artist Sonja Hinrichsen will lead a drawing session in order to create a large-scale collaborative piece as well as smaller compositions you can take home or give as gifts. A simple pen gesture will evolve into diverse patterns and systems. Each hand gives the pen stroke a distinct personality. No drawing skills necessary! The larger work will be cut up into smaller pieces and framed or incorporated into collages and cards. Experiment with shape, sizes, and formats - let your imagination go wild?
Sonja Hinrichsen is an Oakland based artist who examines urban and natural environments through exploration and research. Her work manifests in immersive video installations and interventions in nature. Her participatory project “Snow Drawings” engages communities worldwide.
