Artrageous: Creating Art for Social Justice IN PERSON

This 4 week multi-media class will enable participants to create art about specific political, social or emotional issues

This 4 week multi-media class will enable participants to create art about the specific political, social or emotional issue that is important to them. Issues discussed will include justice, equality and human rights. Students will spend each class creating mixed media works using any or all of the following: drawing, painting, collage, photography and writing. These works will showcase the artists’ ideas, translating the issues they are passionate about into works of art.

About the teacher:

Carolyn Harper is a Philadelphia based artist who creates large scale textile portraits of people who have been abused, discriminated against, and forgotten. The works provide faces to those who are faceless, nameless and powerless, and bear witness to those who are suffering. She exhibits locally and nationally.
