PAFA is excited to partner with the Brandywine Workshop and Archives to present a six part lecture series entitled iCreate. Launching in the Spring of 2016 and continuing into the Fall, each lecture in the series will feature one of six artists that are working to create a collaborative printmaking project as part of the Brandywine Workshop’s iCreate initative. The second artist to be featured is Marta Sanchez.
MARTA SANCHEZ was born and raised in San Antonio, Texas. Marta Sanchez is deeply inspired by traditional Mexican folk art expressions and is recognized primarily for her retablo paintings, an offspring of traditional Mexican prayer paintings. These soulful works on metal capture the deepest held wishes and dreams of her subjects, as if the artist were lighting a candle in prayer for her subject.
Marta Sanchez earned a MFA in Painting from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University, and a BFA in Painting from the University of Texas at Austin. She teaches at The Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Tyler School of Art and the Springside School.

Brandywine Workshop and Archives was founded in 1972 as the Brandywine Graphic Workshop. The organization remains committed to the creation, documentation and preservation of a legacy of culturally diverse American art and insuring the participation of multi-ethnic artists and audiences in the field of fine art printmaking and related media technologies.
iCreate is a program of the Brandywine Workshop and Archives in cooperation with universities and other national partners. iCreate is the name given to all Brandywine Workshop and Archives projects that explore the integration of art and technology through the creative process. Visiting artist workshops, student workshops and digital media projects provide varied opportunities for participants to work together with experts in technology. With a focus on S.T.E.A.M. based learning and collaborative art- making, iCreate promotes the use of digital platforms for integrated learning, expression, presentation and interpretation.
