Vega Arts Workshop Series


Ideas of Watching: Life Drawing with Jane Dickson kicks off our 2020 season of the Vega Arts Workshop series. Dickson is an acclaimed visual artist who has been chronicling Times Square for more than 30 years in a variety of mediums and on a variety of unconventional surfaces—including vinyl, sandpaper, and Astroturf. Known for her drawings of New York City street life, Dickson describes her process as “drawing things to understand them.” Using newsprint and charcoal, this workshop invites participants to produce life drawings of each other through an interactive experience. Observation, ways of seeing, vulnerability, and performance are themes explored in Dickson’s workshop.

No previous experience in drawing is required. No, seriously. All skill levels are welcome. The workshop is free and all materials are provided. Seating is limited. Register at the link to reserve your spot! Spaces fill up quickly.

Join us for opening night of Jane Dickson’s exhibition Hot, Hot, Hot on Thursday, January 9th 6–8 p.m. at Howl! Happening: An Arturo Vega Project.
