Open Studio with Dylan Scholinski
November 22, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm CST
Spend the afternoon with artist, author, and public speaker Dylan Scholinski.
Between 1:00pm and 4:00pm, Dylan will provide space, guidance and presence during an open studio time, focusing on a collective art project. “Lead with Your Heart” will provide a loose structure in which attendees can look inward and express their creativity, ideas, and emotions.
All supplies will be provided.
Recently his award winning book (The Last Time I Wore a Dress: A Memoir – Penguin/Putnam) was listed in the Top 10 Must Reads in Out Magazines first transgender issue. His work not only portrays the anguish of his forced years of hospitalization for being an “inappropriate female,” but also his ultimate triumph.
Dylan is the founder/witness for the Sent(a)Mental Project: A Memorial to Suicide. He spends much of his time working in his studio, public speaking, creating zines – such as Freedom of Depression, Please Forgive Me For Judging You, Sent(a)Mental – and frequently opens his studio to a variety of Denver metro youth, to provide safe space to explore and discover ways of expressing and empowering themselves without bringing harm to themselves or others.
