Ledger Art Journaling

The ledger art workshop will entail a brief historical background of Plains Indians ledger art, discussion about contemporary forms of ledger art, and the inclusion of ledger art as a form of health promotion and education. Ledger art is a narrative drawing or painting on accounting ledgers dating back to the 1860's.  This art form derived from traditional hide paintings or pictorial winter counts. Participants will experiment with pictorial narratives on a variety of surfaces and explore juxtapositions between written and visual content.
