Mixed Media: Basquiat-inspired Family Feelings Portrait – Family & Community Workshop (Online)

Family & Community Art Workshop

Inspired by the life and work of Jean-Michel Basquiat, we will explore ways in which artists express their feelings, emotions and life experiences in their artwork. Basquiat was an American artist of Haitian and Puerto Rican descent who often combined poetry, text, symbols, and abstract figures into pieces that expressed identity and commented on the world around him. In this online workshop, we will listen to a biographical story on how Basquiat’s relationship with his family inspired and motivated him artistically. Together, we will tap into our own feelings and thoughts to create a mixed media artwork that outwardly expresses the many emotions we hold inside.
