Who Am I? How does my culture affect me? How can culture and personal memory shape my understanding about my identity? Join artist, Lek Vercauteren Borja, to learn how some contemporary artists explore these questions in their work or practice, reflect on significant events in your life, and create a collage to begin exploring (notions of) who you are using a combination of found materials, written text / personal reflections, and drawings.

Materials needed: scissors or x-acto knife, glue or tape, cutting mat or thick cardboard that’s about 12 x 18 inches, blank paper or cardstock, drawing tools (pencil, pen, marker, etc.) and 2D printed materials such as magazines, comics, family photos, paper, wall paper, dried plants, etc.
