In celebration of The Big Draw Festival, reimagine portraits with street artist Swoon. She’ll share how the drawing process is healing and show you how she weaves fantasy, myth, and the sacred feminine together to craft her whimsical paper portraits. Inspired by her signature style, you’ll snap photos of a model in motion and sketch over the image in the Procreate app on iPad with Apple Pencil.



Caledonia Curry, known as Swoon, took to the street in 1999 by wheat-pasting her portraits on the sides of buildings. Today, her work can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art, the Tate Modern, and more.
