About the Event
8/7/20 - 10/9/20
EDUCATOR: JENNA ALDERISO
This place-based course is inspired by the Highwaymen, a group of African American arts celebrated for their distinctive paintings of Florida’s natural environment, use of nontraditional natural materials, and creative resilience in the face of racial discrimination in the Jim Crow South. Students will participate daily in guided skill-building instruction related to drawing, painting, landscapes, natural materials, and environmental art while also experiencing Open Studio time to explore open self-guided creation across mediums and content. The course will culminate in an outdoor art trunk show in the Eau Gallie Arts District where students will be given the option to sell their art to the community.
