Field Drawing Workshop at Algiers Point With Alyssa Lizzini feat. Paige DeVries
Fri, December 1st at 4:30 PM
Field Drawings is a series of free on-location drawing workshops taking place in multiple cities and neighborhoods throughout the United States led by Cleveland-based visual artist Alyssa Lizzini. The purpose of the workshops is to encourage the slow and attentive process of observational drawing as a means of neighborhood rediscovery and creative placemaking. Workshop participants will take part in an hour-and-a-half urban sketching excursion and be supplied with sketchbooks and drawing tools. There will be two workshops taking place in New Orleans with the help of the NOMA Creative Assembly resident artists Daniel Fitzpatrick and Paige DeVries. Participants should wear good walking shoes for light neighborhood exploration and bring a bottle of water.
Participants will meet for this workshop at Barracuda Taco Stand, 446 Pelican Ave, New Orleans, LA 70114.
Materials will be provided. Free with advanced registration.
About the Artist
Alyssa Lizzini is an artist from Cleveland, Ohio, whose work explores concepts of social geography and community engagement through on-location drawing. Lizzini’s layered images are heavily inspired by her own archival, ethnographic, and visual research of city spaces—and her lived experience growing up in the city of Cleveland. In the studio, she utilizes drawing, painting, and printmaking techniques to create visually complex images that mirror the complexity of our social and spatial world. Lizzini graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2022.
