Learn the techniques and cultural history of ledger drawing. This style of drawing is a traditional art depicting events such as warfare, hunting and courtship that originated amongst the Cheyenne, Arapaho, Kiowa and Lakota tribes in the 1850's. It’s a form of visual storytelling as there was no formal written language to record those life moments. In this two-hour class George Curtis Levi, Southern Cheyenne artist, will take students through his process of how he continues the preservation of his tribal culture, and walk them through the creation of their own drawing with their own story.
