Family Fun Drop In

Sunday, February 21, 2016 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm

This session will explore the expressionist work of Jean Michel Basquiat.  Basquiat often used "hero" like people in his art work such as athletes, police officers, musicians, prophets and even himself. Many of his portrait works have a halo above the person that was painted. His work also demonstrated social issues by putting words and poetry within his art work. Participants can create a work showing a hero to them, a self portrait or a story about a social issue that they feel passionate about.  Families will also learn about Kara Walker's silhouette art works.

Join us for Family Fun Drop In every Sunday afternoon from 2-3pm. A suggested $5 donation per family.

A weaver of music, movement, and consciousness Beth uses her life teachings and understanding of the human experience to pour through her original material. Her alto voice with a hint of blues adds depth to each song and performance.

Beth wears many hats in her life as a mother to three beautiful girls, wife to her thoughtful husband, Hip Chick Designs Clothing, as well as Shiatsu Massage therapist and Free Spirit Dance Teacher. Exploring the fullness in life, both light and dark, and the ever present beauty that surrounds us Beth finds joy and fulfillment in performing and sharing with others through her songs.
