Explore Art with Chelsea Kirksey!  Learn about the career of artist, author, and activist Faith Ringgold. We will read a few of her books, including award winning Tar Beach and discuss the role of storytelling in her art. Each student will then tell their own story through the medium of collage. 

Exploring Ringgold: Quilting Stories is the second class in our Exploring Art series. In each of these classes, you will learn about a particular artist and then create a piece in the style of that artist. This class will be held the 3rd Saturday of each month, January - April, from 1-3pm. (Jan 18, Feb 15, March 21, and April 18).
