Melanie Yazzie Monotype Workshop

Alfred University, through the Institute for Electronic Arts, is delighted to welcome Melanie Yazzie to our print shop this June for a monotype workshop. The workshop will be held from June 10th to 14th from 10 am to 3 pm with a lunch break. The workshop has limited space, so apply early if interested.

As a printmaker, painter, and sculptor, Melanie Yazzie’s work draws upon her rich Diné (Navajo) cultural heritage. Her work follows the Diné dictum “walk in beauty” literally, creating beauty and harmony. As an artist, she works to serve as an agent of change by encouraging others to learn about social, cultural, and political phenomena shaping the contemporary lives of Native peoples in the United States and beyond. Her work incorporates both personal experiences as well as the events and symbols from Dine culture. Her work is informed and shaped by personal experiences.
