Explore your creativity, learn a new skill, and create art with an iPad in this free Digital Art Making workshop at a FiftyForward Center, presented in partnership with the Frist Art Museum and supported by E. A. Michelson Philanthropy.
The workshop consists of eight 90-minute art-making sessions led by a teaching artist and a visit to the Frist Art Museum to see the exhibition Multiplicity: Blackness in Contemporary American Collage and explore themes of identity. In each session, participants will learn art skills on an iPad using the ProCreate app, as well as traditional artmaking materials, to create their own zine—an informal publication about you. At the end of the workshop, there will be a concluding event at the Martin Center; there will also be a culminating exhibition at the Frist Art Museum of all participating FiftyForward Centers in the Upper-Level Education Corridor in June 2024.
This workshop is free and open to the public and FiftyForward members. All participants will receive a dual year-long membership to the Frist Art Museum.
For questions, call Lisa or Traci at FiftyForward 615.883.8375.
The FiftyForward Martin Center is located at 960 Heritage Way, Brentwood, TN 37027.
