Get Dirty with tahsin the good
Get Dirty is a new artist-led Launchpad Learning series that offers space for creators to share their craft, explore process, and create collectively.
We're kicking off this workshop series with tahsin the good, whose work is currently on exhibit at Launchpad! "I had to think about what I wanted to put out into the world... When you look at my art, what do you feel compelled to do?" reflects tahsin. Hear her story, her motivations, and the methods behind her work, followed by a hands-on collage project using your own portrait, incorporating positive and encouraging messaging, abstracted forms to serve as a visual reminder of your potential and inner light.
