Black History Month Artist Workshop

February is the time of year when we celebrate the many different African-American faces that have helped shape our society for the better. Whether it be in government, social justice, art, dance, photography, culinary, sports, and so on, we celebrate all the men and women that have paved the way for all of us.

This February is Eastside Community Development Corporation's 2nd Annual Black History Month Art Exhibit. Our workshop, Saturday, February 12th from 1pm - 5pm, is for you to choose which African- American artist and one of their famous pieces you would like to recreate by painting. Your work will be presented in our Black History Month Art Exhibit, Saturday, February 26, 2021, to be auctioned. 100% of all the money earned from your auction sale goes straight to... YOU!

Disclaimer: Parent(s)/ Guardian(s), there will be a photo release form to sign for the workshop and the Art Program.

Masks Required. Temperatures will be checked upon arrival.

Black History Month Art Exhibit

The Black History Month Art Exhibit allows middle and high school students to present their artistic skills to the public and to explore a career path other than hospitality and “blue collar” careers. Students will learn about African- American artists throughout American history and replicate a famous painting from one of the artists discussed.

 

Students will present their art to the Tri-County area in our second annual Black History Month Art Exhibit on February 26, 2022. Students’ paintings will be auctioned online via 32auctions.com, and students will receive 100% of their sale. The ECDC will also host an in-person raffle to fundraise for materials for tutoring and other youth events.

This will be an in-person, free event. We are requesting a $10 donation.
