We're thrilled to partner with the Carnegie International to host a Tam O'Shanter Drawing Session on Saturday, April 14th from 12pm-2pm. This drawing session will be led by Mimi Cherono Ng'ok. She will lead a zine-making session and invite us into her creative process inspired by travels, reading, and listening. Mimi Cherono Ng'ok is a Nairobi-based artist participating in this year's Carnegie International.
Tam O'Shanter Drawing Sessions are for those who draw and for those who don't. Come explore contemporary art through improvised forms of drawing with artists and organizers of the Carnegie International. Sketching, doodling, cartooning, mapping, writing, and marking are among the many modes that will bring us together.
Named after the original art classes for young people that Carnegie Museum of Art has been holding since 1929; the tam o'shanter, or tam, is a Scottish beret—oft adorned by a pompom.
