UNCENSORED DC: DIY Wheatpasting with Artist Dana Jeri Maier

  • Shaw (Watha T. Daniel) Library 1630 7th Street Northwest Washington, DC, 20001 United States (map)

Learn to wheatpaste, the art of gluing oversized photocopies to walls, with artist and cartoonist Dana Jeri Maier. You will learn how to go from an 8"x10'' drawing to a large-scale, finished wheatpaste, where to buy materials for cheap, and all about the beauty of impermanent street art. Glue, brushes, and drawing materials will be provided for in-class demonstrations and there will be a final group art project. This program is part of DCPL's month-long celebration of Banned Books, and is made possible by the DC Public Library Foundation. 
Space is limited due to the hands-on nature of the class, so please register at to reserve your spot.*
