Drawing Together: Portrait + Story with Julia Rothman and Shaina Feinberg

Join us at Hauser & Wirth's new West 18th Street location for a group drawing session led by Julia Rothman and Shaina Feinberg.

Half storytelling and half drawing, this event will be an introduction to illustrated journalism, offering participants a chance to experience firsthand how stories can be brought to life through a combination of words and art.

This event is free to attend and includes a free copy of Julia and Shaina's new book, How We Got By. Advance registration is required.

Paper will be provided, but please come prepared with your favorite pencils, pens, and markers. Please note that pastels, charcoal, and wet media such as paint, ink, and watercolor are currently prohibited in the Hauser & Wirth amphitheater. Previous illustration experience is not required.

Please be advised that photographs will be taken at this event for use on the Hauser & Wirth website, social media and in other marketing materials.
