ArtVenture: Hidden Panels with Andrea Marcos
How do the materials we use help us imagine stories about ourselves and our communities? How does a story change if you print it on fabric instead of paper or use images instead of words? Inspired by the way a few of the artists in In Plain Sight (Sanford Biggers, Sadie Barnette, Ebony G. Patterson) use textiles for community storytelling, we will use printmaking techniques, learn to carve linoleum blocks, and stamp our stories on a variety of fabrics and surfaces. We'll think about how stories are shaped, connected, and repeated over time. Although this activity involves sharp tools for cutting lino blocks, we will have options available that don’t require their use. Let’s see what our stories can look like!    

Andrea Marcos is a self-taught/community-taught printmaker, nerd, educator, aries-youngest-child, queer, dedicated to collective liberation and radical imagination. Andrea teaches classes at Pratt Fine Arts Center, monthly workshops at Hard Lace Collective Studios, and runs an annual linocut print subscription. Located in Seattle, WA/Duwamish land. ig:@drea.marcos // www.dreamarcos.com
