So You're an Artist...


Our six-episode series on representation and social justice in art continues in a conversation with painter and teacher Desiree Dufresne! Desiree joins us via Zoom to talk about her work as a painter, queer representation in painting and film, and ballroom culture. To see some of Desiree's work and to check out other queer artists, follow her on Instagram (@becameadreamitself) or visit her website at www.desireedufresne.net for her portfolio and commissions. The book she mentions in the show is called "Art and Queer Culture" and "Paris is Burning" is the documentary on NYC drag culture in the 80s.  Keep up with us on Instgram (@artist.pod) and Twitter (@artist_pod) for updates, behind the scenes, drawing challenges, and more! We'll see you in two weeks! Note: Even though it may have faded away from your feeds, racial injustice is still happening.
