Teen Silk Painting Workshop with artist Mylan Nguyen
Jun 3 @ 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm
Teen Silk Painting Workshop with artist Mylan Nguyen @ Crow Collection of Asian Art

Mylan Nguyen is a Dallas native of Vietnamese and Mexican descent. She studied illustration in Los Angeles and ceramics in Japan and creates gallery and installation work in her own unique illustration style. Look and learn at the works of some of artist Mylan Nguyen’s favorite illustrators, Ako Castuera, Yumi Sakugawa, and Gerald Leung, and examine their approach to designing and creating compelling characters.

Participants will complete a small color wheel, practice brushstrokes, and salt techniques to create a unique piece on silk. Teens will get a chance to dream up and draw their own characters on silk with the loose theme of “imaginary friendship”.  Then, participants will have the opportunity to engage in discussions around narrative, personal illustration style, and what it means to create a voice that is unique to the characters that come from one’s own world. Pieces from this workshop will be used by the artist to create a sculptural, interactive installation that will be displayed alongside participant work in a community exhibition.

*Please Note*
This workshop is for teens ages 13-18.

Sopheap Pich (b. 1971) is recognized today as Cambodia’s most internationally prominent contemporary artist.  Born in Battambang, Cambodia, he moved with his family to the United States in 1984, and received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1999.  In 2002, he returned to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where he continues to be based.  Pich is known for working with local materials such as bamboo, rattan, burlap from rice bags, beeswax and earth pigments gathered from around Cambodia and making sculptures that are inspired by bodily organs, vegetal forms, and abstract geometric structures.  His childhood experiences during the genocidal conditions of late 1970s Cambodia has had a lasting impact on his work, informing its themes of time, memory and the body.
