What is it like to draw while eating something salty or sweet? How can we change the texture of a "ready-made" through sculptural techniques? Can we screenprint a can of soup like Warhol? In this week’s afternoon camp, participants will learn about the Pop Art Movement through unconventional ways of making art. Bring your imagination and dress for mess!

About the Instructor:
Born and raised in North Carolina, McKenzie Drake is no foreigner to sweet tea and the all-inclusive "y'all." After graduating from Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, in 2017 with a BA in Art and Political Science, McKenzie enjoys inspiring others to think creatively in and out of the studio. Her art has been featured in multiple group juried exhibitions, community-based events, and is featured in the Rhodes College permanent collection. She now continues her practice as the William R. Hollingsworth Fellow at the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson, Mississippi, where she leads family and studio programming.
