Explore the steps to creating dynamic characters, then write some of your own character descriptions inspired by the “bold, physical, and tactile” work of Lynda Benglis. We’ll take you through her virtual exhibition to discover elements of compelling human characters in artworks such as  Jeantaud and Pani Rang #17. The Lynda Benglis exhibition is on view in the National Gallery of Art’s East Building now through January 2, 2022.
