  • Workshop led by

    Stark holds a BA in art practice from UC Berkeley and works at Paulson Fontaine Press. She has made art with children and others, including at BAMPFA’s Family Day. In her own practice, she makes paintings and prints focused on personal culinary histories.

Artist Candice Lin shares aspects of her experience during the pandemic, including the companionship of her cat, Roger. After an up-close and personal look at the cats and other animals in Lin’s art, make a personal spirit-animal flag using a wax-resist fabric-dyeing process. (Smocks will be provided.) What animal is most special to you?
