January HIGH Frequency Friday
Drink and Draw
Signature drink: Affirmation (horchata and rum)
Skyway Level, Wieland Pavilion
Drop in for drawing lessons with Georgia State University instructor Michael Fisher-Tolley. All levels welcome!
Gesture, Then Shape, Then Form: We will focus on getting a loose silhouette of the figure with loose, sloppy gesture drawing. We’ll then refine the edges into a silhouette, measuring distances and angles to ensure that the shape is accurate. Finally, we will turn that flat shape into a three-dimensional form with cross-contour lines, striving to understand the body’s volume in space.
Live Poetry Reading – The Art Section
Second Level, Stent Family Wing
The Art Section: An Online Journal of Art and Cultural Commentary presents a live reading of new poems inspired by the exhibition Something Over Something Else: Romare Bearden Profile Series, commissioned by The Art Section and curated by poet Opal Moore. Poets Jericho Brown, Melba J Boyd, Sharan Strange, Felton Eaddy, and Frank X Walker will read new poems written in response to the collages on view in the gallery. Look, listen and be part of this exciting event.
