Corita Kent, also known as Sister Mary Corita, was an artist with an innovative approach to design and education. By the 1960s, her vibrant serigraphs were drawing international acclaim. Corita’s work reflected her concerns about poverty, racism, and war, and her messages of peace and social justice continue to resonate with audiences today. Learn more →

On Saturday, September 25th, join Los Angeles-based artist, educator, and researcher Álvaro D. Márquez in the latest installment of our Corita 101 virtual workshop series. As part of an ongoing partnership between Corita Art Center and Casa Esperanza, the workshop will center the youth of Panorama City.

Drawing inspiration from Corita’s pedagogy, this workshop will teach you about the expressive potential of line and color. Under Álvaro’s guidance, you will learn to make an abstract drawing and turn it into an accordion book, while exploring the ways that color and line can communicate feelings and emotional states.

This program was made possible through the Community Impacts Art Grant thanks to the Department of Arts And Culture Los Angeles.

Time: September 25, 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. Pacific Time (US and Canada)
