Join us to learn about the life and work of artist Pamela Colman Smith through an interactive talk and drawing event. Illustrator Cat Willett will talk about Pamela, a generally unknown artist and visionary who created the illustrations for the most popular tarot card deck in the world. Learn about Pamela’s incredibly prolific career, her enchanting life story, and her drawings that have inspired generations.
Following the talk, a tarot card tableau with a live model will be on display for a figure drawing session - open to artists of all ages and skill level.
