Julie Mehretu makes large-scale artworks that are built up through layers of paint, pencil, pen, and ink. She takes her visual vocabulary from maps, urban planning grids, and architectural forms. These are combined to make dynamic works that blur the line between abstraction and figuration.

Together, we will gather unique materials from around our homes. Then, we will create our own layered compositions!

Materials:
––Clear plastic wrap, sheets of tracing paper, or clear acetate
––Sharpie markers
––Masking tape
––Optional (Acrylic paint, Nail polish)

Advanced registration required.

  • The Whitney Museum of American Art presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists. The Whitney is dedicated to collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art, and its collection—arguably the finest holding of twentieth-century American art in the world—is the Museum's key resource. The Museum's signature exhibition, the Biennial, is the country's leading survey of the most recent developments in American art.
