Survival requires resilience but there’s no clear roadmap to that for artists. Between the pressure of caring for you family, trying to pass your classes, and wondering who’s lurking on your instagram, it can be hard to focus on your creativity. Through this course artists will channel the humanity in their experiences to support their ability to create 2D and 3D works of art. Key topics we’ll be exploring together include History, Self-Care, and Innovation. The final project for the course will be a mixed media installation that embodies the youth artists' vision of what they need to make the future better for the communities they are a part of now and hope to build tomorrow.
