An ode to the art of the edit, this session is led by Karen Kelly and Barbara Schröder of Dancing Foxes Press, publishers and editors of the creative team for Carnegie Int’l, 57th ed., 2018. After a little lesson on how to draw editing and proofreading symbols, participants will amend and adorn iconic written passages from such fields as law, science, and journalism.

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 bring 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.
