The Why of Wheatpasting

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.

Tickets: $25
