Bookings essential - free

This free program will be delivered using Zoom.

Join us online for a vibrant workshop with artist TextaQueen! Discover more about their art practice before grabbing your own Textas and creating a movie-inspired poster about fighting oppression. Right on!

We’ll be taking a break from 2.00 – 3.00pm for a breather (or snack). Feel free to keep going on your poster during this time though!

All you’ll need to get creative:

  • A4 or larger white paper
  • Textas! Or anything you prefer to draw with like pens, crayons or pencils

TextaQueen is known for using the humble fibre-tip marker to draw out complex politics of gender, race, sexuality and identity in detailed portraiture. They explore the influences visual and popular culture on personal identity. Beyond works on paper, their practice expands to photography, painting, curating, video, printmaking, performance, self-publishing, writing and murals.
