A painting held on a wooden stand with two vertical supports shows a head from behind. A dark cap covers most of the head, but voluminous dark curls protrude from the bottom. A hand, presumably of the same figure, with dark-orange nail polish touches the top side of the cap on the right side.

Enjoy some creative time with drop-in sketching at the museum inspired by the rich, abstracted forms of Chicago artist Christina Ramberg.

This program is led by Chicago-based artist and educator Cameron Mankin and open to all experience levels. All materials will be provided.

about the teaching artist

Cameron Mankin makes drawings, prints, and artist’s books that investigate and retool found media. Security camera footage, cracked CDs, and old textbooks get broken down into their component parts and collaged together into exploded arrangements, all with the goal of cracking the surface of the increasingly streamlined media systems we interact with in our daily lives. Mankin teaches in the Media Arts and Design program at the University of Chicago.
