Tam O’Shanter Drawing Sessions

These creative sessions are for those who draw and for those who don’t. Explore contemporary art through improvised forms of drawing with artists and organizers of the 2018 Carnegie International. Sketching, doodling, cartooning, mapping, writing, and marking are among the many modes that will draw us together.

Named after the original art classes for young people that Carnegie Museum of Art has been holding since 1929; the tam o’shanter, or tam, is a Scottish beret—oft adorned by a pompom. Read more about the Tam O’Shanter Drawing Sessions(external link).

What Is Contemporary?

Follow the process leading up to the Carnegie International exhibition with curator Ingrid Schaffner, whose annual lecture (external link) brings the community along with her in a fast-paced journey.
