Scribble drawings inspired by Julie Mehretu’s Auguries

We will take inspiration from Mehretu’s Auguries to create scribble drawings. Our activity will explore how random lines and shapes can come together to make a new and exciting picture. Let your mind wander and see what you can create!

Saturday, December 4, 1:00-2:00 PM
Fischman Lobby, Gund Gallery

Participation is FREE and open to the public. Preregistration is required and limited to 15 participants. Follow this link to sign up now.
