Family Art Workshop: My Surreal City

August 6, 2020 @ 3:15 pm – 4:00 pm

MoAD invites you to join a 45-minute guided drawing workshop on Thursday, August 6th at 3:15pm PST.

This workshop is ideal for ages 7 and up, and you do not have to possess any artistic skills to participate in this workshop!

We will revisit selected works from our exhibition, Africa State of Mind, and learn the basics of drawing buildings, roads, bridges, and green spaces with a surrealist twist!

While drawing our unique cities, we will discuss how to define space, determine proportion and scale, and present exciting perspectives.

For the workshop you will need:

  • A pencil;
  • An eraser;
  • Two sheets of plain white paper (8.5” x 11” or larger);
  • A ruler or other straight edge;
  • Optional materials:
    • Blue/black pen
    • Markers
