Jump in at any time for this fun half-day virtual workshop with artist and Frost Art guest curator Pepe Mar. The event will kick off with a live tour of Mar’s exhibition at Frost Art FIU, Tesoro: Pepe Mar’s Love Letter to the Frost. Attendees will gain insight into the artist’s process with his assemblage artwork and learn more about his alter ego “Paprika.” The event will then turn to artmaking, where participants will be shown how to create their own alter ego-themed, mixed-media portrait while examining how this past year has changed our perspectives on life. Suggested materials for the collage: paper, scraps of fabric, photocopies, recyclable materials, glue, scissors, tape, markers, and paint.
