BLACK AMERICAN ARTISTS

BLACK AMERICAN ARTISTS

Learn about self-taught artists who use dreams, inner visions, imaginations, and even music as motivation for art making -- sculpting, painting, and building through the desire and need to create with whatever is nearby.  Paintings and sculptures using scrap wood, old binder paper, dirt, bubblegum, and more will open your eyes to what’s around you.  Exercise creativity, self-expression, and imagination with these options:

 

Option 1:  Illustrate your own inner visions using chalk pastels on paper

 

OR

 

Option 2:  Create something from items in YOUR environment. Using recyclable items found at home, office, school, outdoors, and wherever, make something new from old in the real sense.
