Drawing Plans for the Next American Revolution.
Dan will guide students in a reading of “A Job Ain’t The Answer,” a short pamphlet written and disseminated by Jimmy and Grace Lee Boggs in the 1980s, and lead a discussion about current political conditions. Participants will then think through the future by drawing free form lists, charts, maps, and diagrams.
Drawing supplies provided. Feel free to bring your preferred drawing media and/or preferred paper, enough for an afternoon of drawing. And your preferred tools: straight edge, templates, compass, erasers, etc. Evening snacks provided!
Bring a pamphlet, article, or book to pass around, so as to put more ideas and issues into the mix.
Ages 16 and up, limited to 12 people.
Upon registration, you will be sent a link to the reading for the course.
