Red Mustard and Yellow Lipstick: A Making Workshop for Families

Join artist, animator and cartoonist Ben Connors for an exploration into the collaborative drawing game, Exquisite Corpse. Working on different sections of the body, children are invited to make a life-size Plexiglas figure, responding to the bold, weird and wonderful world of the Chicago Imagists.

The Imagists’ interest in reverse-painting on transparent surfaces – inspired by show window designs and pinball machine graphics – and their affinity towards drawing with everyday materials like lipstick or mustard form the starting point for an afternoon of re-inventing the human form.

Suitable for ages 4 – 12.
