An arrangement of shapes on paper: i the foreground, darker shades of gray and black in triangles, diamonds, and rhombuses. The edges are soft. Faint wood patterns emerge in their centers. Behind them, a few rectangles with the same woodgrain create a soft backdrop.

Inspired by Lygia Pape: Tecelares, this program invites participants to create one-of-a-kind monoprints using the frottage or rubbing technique. Join us and discover how everyday objects can be tools for making unique and shareable works of art. The program will be led by artist and longtime Art Institute educator Leslie Baum.

Participants are encouraged to visit the exhibition Lygia Pape: Tecelares on their own, prior to the program.

Saturday Studio is an art-making experience in the galleries led by Chicago-based artists that welcomes participants of all experience levels. The program is free with admission, and all materials are provided.
