Inspired by last month’s Beyond Heaven Chicago House Party Flyers 1983-1989 book talk , we will host a flyer workshop on Thursday, December 6, from 6-8pm. This workshop will focus on the creative and technical avenues utilized by artists to create flyers and other promotional materials and will be held at the Dikeou Pop-Up: Colfax, 312 E Colfax Ave. Workshops are free and open to the public, and materials as well as light refreshments will be provided.

Vastly diverse in content, design, and technique, flyers are small handbills most often distributed with the intent of promoting an event or product. In anticipation of upcoming holiday parties, birthdays, and other events – real or imagined – participants are invited to create a flyer of their own. Utilizing various collage techniques with found or original text and imagery, this workshop will explore the array of methods available to create one of a kind flyer designs.

Dikeou Collection’s workshops are a great way for people of all ages to learn more about contemporary art and experiment with new creative processes. Workshops include a tutorial and presentation of the artwork highlighted that month.
