Mural Art Graduate Seminar, Spring 2021
Scale. Gender. Challenges for Minority Artists.

For our grad seminar on mural art, we had a workshop day exploring scale, gender, and the challenges for minority artists. We looked at how artists with limited resources have to work small, so we made tiny paintings. While painting those, we also experienced the distractions from creativity when there’s domestic duties to manage, from diapering babies to following a recipe to make a mixed drink. Finally, we did an homage to artist Yves Klein who painted with women’s bodies, so we painted with barbies as our materials, questioning the position of women and their bodies as muses or models versus creators and geniuses.
