Look & Make: Pen & Ink Workshop

This event took place on April 4, 2020. Like any budding artist, Clyfford Still learned foundational techniques as he began his career. Check out the virtual gallery of the works in this exhibition here to see how Still applied these techniques in his early work and then try some artmaking yourself (or just watch!) during a playful, 30-minute hands-on workshop led by Elayne Moseley from the Art Students League of Denver. Suggested materials for this workshop include: watercolor set with brush, crayons, and paper. All of these materials should be available at your local grocery store. Elayne Moseley is an artist based outside of Denver, CO and is currently an art instructor at the Arts Students League of Denver.
