Due to Covid-19 and the uncertainty around what will be possible with public health protocols this summer, we have decided to move Summer 2020 VALT online, and to shift it into a series of shorter Virtual VALT workshops based on the VALT curriculum.
Virtual VALT will meet on Zoom (JXTA will send a link and password before each session). Materials will be available for contactless pick-up from JXTA before each session. Each session is 3 weeks long, with a different technique each week.
Session 1: June 15 – July 2 (3 weeks)
Session 2: July 6 – July 23, 2020 (3 weeks)
Session 3: August 3 – August 20 (3 weeks)
Week 1 – Contour drawing
Week 2 – Self portraits
Week 3 – Comic character design
Mondays – Thursdays: 10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.*

Saturday, June 6: 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Wednesday, June 10: 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
