Professional Development: Workshop
1400 North Monroe St, Tallahassee, FL, 32303
2022 is the year of Black Tiger in the Chinese zodiac. The tiger represents its brave character and leadership. Jiha Moon has designed an image for a coloring page titled “Brave Black Tiger 2022” in which the powerful tiger is eating up COVID and bringing all of the positive energy to the world in 2022.
Participants will receive a screen-printed design and Moon will discuss the symbolism and meaning in the piece while the group applies their own color scheme to complete the image using color pencils and watercolor. Moon will present inspirational images from her personal archive to help guide the coloring process.
Bring Colored Pencils or Watercolor (Screen prints will be provided for in-person attendees that evening and Zoom attendees will be able to pick up their screen prints at the Tallahassee Senior Center from Tuesday February 15 – Thursday February 17 from 8am-5pm and Friday February 18 from 8am-12pm at reception – located on the ground floor)
Jiha Moon Bio:
Moon gestural paintings, mixed media, ceramic sculpture and installation explore fluid identities and the global movement of people and their cultures. She says “I am a cartographer of cultures and an icon maker in my lucid worlds.” She is taking cues from wide ranges of history of Eastern and Western art, colors and designs from popular culture, Korean temple paintings and folk art, internet emoticons and icons, fruit stickers and labels of products from all over the place. She often teases and changes these lexicons so that they are hard to identify, yet stay in a familiar zone.
