BLACK AMERICAN ARTISTS*
Learn about self-taught artists who use dreams, inner visions, imaginations, and music as motivation -- sculpting, painting, and building through the desire and need to create with whatever is nearby. Artsist 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
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. Tap into your imagination and exercise your building and engineering skills at the same time.
