Wheatpasting workshops for #uncensoredDC


I'm back in the wheatpasting workshop game this month in honor of the DC Public Library's Banned Book Week. The first one was yesterday, which resulted in this awesome wheatpasted collage you can see here. 

If you'd like to join me at the next workshops, spots are still available and tickets are free! Details below.

Wheatpasting for Beginners

And how. 

The awesome folks at LemonBowl DC are kind enough to let me host a few wheatpasting workshops this year. If you ever wanted to learn the not-so-fine art of gluing oversized paper to walls, I am spilling all of my secrets on February 21 and March 8 for $25. 

The last one sold out, so get tickets while you can here! Official description: 

Learn the not-so-ancient art of gluing oversized photocopies to walls with artist and cartoonist Dana Jeri Maier. You will learn:

- How to go from an 8x10'' drawing to a large-scale, finished wheatpaste
- Where to buy materials for cheap
- Dana’s personal street art philosophy (yes, she does have one!) 

All students will receive a limited-edition booklet by Dana containing wheatpasting resources and tips. Glue, brushes, and drawing materials will also be provided for in-class demonstrations, along with wine and snacks to get the creative juices flowing.
