DrawNow! DibujoAhora!

Presented in Spanish and English, and guided by teaching artist Ada Pilar Cruz, this participatory online drawing workshop focuses on a selection of works in - David Hammons: Body Prints, 1968–1979. David Hammons used the body as both a drawing tool and printing plate for image making. These works celebrate the sacredness of objects touched or made by the Black body and reveal Hammons’s biting critique of racial oppression and his deep commitment to social justice. The hands-on project includes oiling parts of your body and objects.
