Teen Artist Workshop: Skin Stories; Using Art to Take on Race
Teacher(s): Aja Mujinga Sherrard
February 20, 2019
4:00-6:00 PM
Missoula Art Museum - Spacer

Race is complicated, and these artists know it! We’ll look at how some artists used art to ask the big questions about what race means and how it affects how people see us, how we see ourselves, and what we do about it. Then, we’ll mix media, going back into photographs of ourselves with paint and ink to tell our own “skin stories.”

Teen Artist Workshops

4–6 PM, free, all materials and snacks provided.

This is a unique opportunity for teens to learn different techniques and methods from a professional artist and create artwork of their own. Teens work closely with professional artists in a fun and informal environment. Special thanks to the Good Food Store and the LEAW Foundation for supporting teens and art at MAM.
