Lead Artist: Brad Bernard
Medium: Mixed Media
Lead Artist Brad Bernard will teach Apprentices basic technical skills in a variety of art mediums, such as: portrait making, printmaking, mixed-media collage, and digital photography. Apprentices will utilize and synthesize these techniques to create an Identity Map of the person they have identified from their neighborhood to be the subject of their portrait. The program’s deliverable will be a 24 X 36 multimedia portrait for each Apprentice that focuses on the person they have identified to be its subject, and will incorporate neighborhood maps and address the unique journey of each Apprentice’s identified subject person.
ArtWorks plans to host an exhibition to unveil and attempt to sell the Apprentices work. We hope to host the exhibition at the King Commons II building on Martin Luther King Drive in the Harambee neighborhood for the January 2010 Gallery Night.
