Do Say Gay! Queer Art Class

May 13 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

|Multi-Day Event (See all)

One event on May 13, 2022 at 10:00 am

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Friday, repeating until May 27, 2022

This series of classes will explore historic queer artists and their work, art making as an opportunity for representation and personal storytelling, and how to use art to advocate for social justice.

Lessons will concentrate on some well-known, queer artists as well as artists that are creating work that falls outside of the classic, heteronormative cannon.

Each lesson will focus on a different artist.

We will look at their life and biography as well as examples of their work and learn about the media and style each artist employs to create art.

We will create “Identity Inventories” to help focus our artistic eye on what we find important to help guide our art practices.

Finally, we will create our own works of art utilizing what we learned in class.

The overarching theme for this series of lessons is the idea of “Art Where You Are”.
Enjoyment and creation of art can, and should, be available to everyone at every level of skill, no matter their education or artistic background as a form of representation, self-care, self-love, and healing.

 

Facilitator: Artist Lucas Gordon
