Walking Tour Drawing Workshop (2017 Transit Artist in Residence Program)

June 4, 2017 @ 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM


Chicago walking tour drawing workshop! Making zines with a journalistic and autobiographical approach lead by CHIPRC AiR Celia Marquis.

Artist and illustrator Celia Marquis from Montreal, Québec invites you to join her on an afternoon walking tour around CHIPRC’s West Town neighborhood where you’ll get an insight on her process of collecting and collaging information, memories and memorabilia as an alternative means of storytelling.

Attendees will then take time to draw personally significant details about this outing, and assemble a collective zine. Bring your paper, pen, pencils and paint (some materials provided). Participants will receive a copy of the collective workshop zine compiled by Celia.

Workshop fee is $10. Open to all ages and skill levels.

About Celia Marquis: She graduated in 2014 from Concordia University with a Bachelor in Fine Arts. Her work is darkly humorous drawings about living an artist’s life, but also for publishing more contemplative and poetic snippets of her daily life, online or in zines.
