About the instructors:
Language and image have a symbiotic relationship in Gordon Fluke’s art, which brings together political activism and personal reflection. He often infuses his work with levity though pop culture and bright imagery. Valerie Roybal works with vintage and re-purposed materials, reinventing them with aesthetic and intention. She frequently moves between mediums, and considers experimentation key to her process
