Katherine Toukhy, Renewing Ourselves Through Symbol and Gesture
Saturday, March 19, 2022 | 3:00 - 4:00 PM

How do we express renewal during these times? Inspired by symbols in ancient Egyptian art and artwork by AIM artist Katherine Toukhy, participants will create their own printed designs to express life and renewal in our present lives.

 

We will briefly discuss how the symbols and gestures presented in Toukhy’s animation and mixed media work are connected to ancient Egyptian art and renewal. Participants of any age can create their own symbols to express cycles of life using references provided by the artist or can draw their own. We will also discuss the symbolism of colors we use during the workshop which are: yellow, red, and black.
