Norton Workshop: Painting Words
August 11, 10:00 am to 1:00 pm
This workshop is inspired by artworks by artists who use letters, words or numbers to create text-based paintings. Key artworks from the Fisher Landau Collection will serve as inspiration, including those by Robert Indiana, Barbara Kruger, Glenn Ligon and Ed Ruscha. Participants will work with acrylic paint and stencils, vinyl letters and collage media to create paintings that convey a message or play with letters as abstract forms. Led by Armory instructor Kim Rae Taylor, this workshop allows participants to explore the many ways text and paint can converge to create unique works of art.
