Mini Painting Workshop with Teng Teng at Flux Saturday
September 25 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
You’ll have a unique chance to create a miniature painting on a gold-plated frame to bring home with you to wear as jewelry or display as art. After you arrive, Teng Teng will give you hands-on instruction on how to paint using the tiniest paint brush you’ve ever seen. This event is totally free.
Teng Teng will provide picture books and reference pictures to give you inspiration. All materials will be provided and no previous painting experience is required. You don’t need to bring anything since all the workshop supplies are provided!
Location: Outdoors at Colonels Row House 404A on Governors Island
About the Facilitator:
Teng Teng is an artist who was born in China. Teng Teng’s diverse practice (painting, installation, performance art, art education etc.) focuses on the integration of art and ordinary people’s daily life and healing others. She has been recording stories in small frames of my own design. These can be hung on a wall or worn on the body, creating a close relationship to the person who wears it. She has sewn the paintings into her clothes and strolled around the city, hoping that the color brings a bit more warmth to the world. Over the past few years she has hosted over 100 workshops around the world to teach people how to draw tiny paintings.
Information about Accessibility on Governors Island can be found here. There is a paved path around the island. To go to Flux Factory’s Colonels Row House 404A, there is one curb that leads to a slightly bumpy path for about 20 yards. To enter the building, there are six steps. All indoor programming takes place on the first floor. Chairs with backs are available in the space.
