Keith Haring’s work was synonymous with the 1980’s New York arts scene. Adorned with bold colours and energetic lines, his iconic pop art and graffiti pieces were not only striking, they also often addressed political and social issues of the times. Facilitated by artist and tutor Jessica Ibacache, in this workshop you’ll create a replica of one of Haring’s celebrated pop art pieces, while learning about the artist’s world.
For this special event, you will receive a special FCAC delivery of wine and paints you will use during the class. This workshop is limited to people who live within the Melbourne Metropolitan region.
WHEN: Saturday 31 October, 5pm-7pm
