  • Audrey Wollen is a feminist theorist and visual artist based in Los Angeles. Wollen uses social media, such as Twitter and Instagram, as platforms for her work on Sad Girl Theory, a theory which posits that internalized female sadness can be used as a radical and political action, separate from masculinized forms of protests such as anger and violence. She introduces this form of protest as an alternative to masculinized anger and violence.

Continuing Education Course



Digital Art Play


In this course, students learn to use an iPad or similar tablet, to expand their creativity and generate digital art forms. Participants learn to download simple user friendly art applications (apps) and are instructed in their use. Free apps provide digital crayons, markers, and paint, all immediately accessible to the participant’s fingertips. Once students have mastered the basics (opening a new file, using the various drawing/painting tools, saving or emailing the resulting artwork file, accessing a saved file) a more complex, inexpensive, art app (with layers, expanded color pallets, multiple brushes featuring opacity and size controls, image transformation options, text inclusion) is purchased and downloaded; and students receive instruction in its use. In the same way you might play a game on your phone, students develop the ability to use creative art practices for relaxation, recreation, and communication. Emphasis is on abstract and folk art styles of representation, graphic design, and sharing through visual communication. Experimentation and exploration is encouraged.

Prerequisite: Students provide their own iPad or similar tablet
