Explore Frederick Kiesler’s multifaceted body of work through sketching and discussion during this two-session virtual workshop taught by artist and educator Rachael Abrams. Participants will create a portfolio of drawings that take inspiration from the exhibition Frederick Kiesler: Vision Machines, recording imagery from their own dreams with pencil on paper while also experimenting with AI-generated images. Additional drawing activities will investigate how humans interact with and use objects and technology.

A list of required materials will be provided in advance of the workshop. Participants should have access to a computer with a camera and WiFi and will receive a Zoom link following registration.

All skill levels are welcome.
