Heck Yes! Heck No! Protest Poster Making Workshop

  • North Regional/Broward College Library (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Participants will create their own protest poster signs, one for (Heck Yes!) and one against (Heck No!). After a stamp carving demonstration, "Heck Yes!" and "Heck No!" stamps are printed onto signs using a hand-carved stamp before participants decorate with additional painted, drawn or collaged elements while appropriate 'yes/no' music is played during the workshop. Afterwards, instructors will photograph each participant and their signs to compile into a zine that will be printed and given to participants and sold during Small Press Fair 2019.

Admission is free to the public.

This workshop will be co-presented by Laura Sue Wilanksy and Kristin Beck.

Laura Sue Wilansky, a.k.a. The Silver Nightingale is a musician, proofreader, poet, arts journalist and visual artist working in collage, cartooning, beads, multimedia and more.

Sketchbook Club: Habits

Sketchbook Club: Habits

This workshop is focused on helping participants to understand their relationship to artmaking, so naturally, the class will be formatted around conversation and a cozy sketchbook session. Students will be drawing, writing, collaging, and talking throughout the class. They will be guided through a series of prompts examining their relationship to their artwork, and the ways they stop themselves from making space for it in their lives. The goal is to offer students strategies for developing a sketchbook habit that they can maintain, and helping them to defend their artmaking practice. Students may or may not arrive with an intention to explore a specific topic, and all experience levels are encouraged to participate.

STUDENTS MUST BRING:

  • One Sketchbook: Brand-new, in-progress, or so hated by the participant that they want to cover everything in it. Must have at least 20 - 30 pages that they are willing to do all kinds of things to.

  • Favorite Pen

  • Erasable Pencil

  • Scissor or X-acto Knife

  • Glue Stick (Acid-Free/pH Neutral)

STUDENTS MAY WISH TO BRING:

  • Other sketchbooks, for reference and very brief discussion. (Your favorite, your least favorite, the one from that trip you took where you were more inspired than ever, the only one you ever actually finished, or any other special sketchbook in your collection. If you have no other sketchbooks or don’t want to bring them, that is completely fine. Please sticky note one or two pages in each that you want to discuss. We won’t look at anything you don’t wish to share.)

  • No more than thirty (30) pages of collage material (colored paper, magazines, book, etc. You don’t want to spend your time sifting through it, you only want to bring things you know you would use.)

  • Watercolors/Ink

  • Litho crayon

  • Conte crayon

  • Postage stamp

From $15
