What truths do you need to tell? How do you express strength and agency? This workshop is an opportunity for all gender identities to come together in a safe space, creating mixed-media collage pieces that express and react to themes related to the #MeToo movement. Pieces can be kept private or shown in the October gallery show. Painting, drawing, and collage materials will be provided, and no visual art experience is needed. Alisara holds an MFA in Printmedia from Cranbrook Academy of Art and has 12 years of experience teaching art to kids and adults, most recently with Harbor School, VISD Family Link and VCA.
Ages: 16-Adult | Saturday, Aug 4 | 1-4 pm

About the Exhibit My #MeToo
The VCA gallery show for the month of October will provide a platform for artists’ response to sexual abuse and harassment. Throughout the month, events and forums will be offered to engage the community in authentic, safe, and respectful dialogue to explore our shared experiences and to learn how we can come together to create a new narrative.
In conjunction with our October gallery show, My #MeToo, VCA is offering a series of free workshops to anyone interested in using the arts to explore the themes and conversations that have evolved out of the #MeToo movement. The workshops are free to participants, but you must register in order to reserve your spot. Participants will have the option of including their completed artwork in the October gallery show. Written work can be included in the show as a stand-alone piece or incorporated into visual artwork.
