Art with a Global Perspective

 

Instructor - Julio Desmont: Go treasure hunting to learn about the rich culture and colors of Haiti. We'll look at the people, objects, and places that tell this artist's story. You'll explore the basics of color, lines and shapes in painting your own story.

Instructor - Ali Beddoe: Learn the stories of ancient artifacts; their geographic regions and the culture those artifacts represent. You will work in clay to create an artifact of your own! Though the shape/form/function will be based on the ancient item, the design/glaze/pattern will represent modern time.

Instructor - Marlena Tucker Fishman: Learn about Stepping; the art of making percussion music using one's full body to stomp, clap, and chant. You'll journey from the mines of South Africa to US universities and communities to learn about the history and culture of this form of dance. Participants will collaborate to create unique step routines that will help build confidence, and spark creativity in a supportive peer environment.
