Eyes on Art is pleased to present American artist Romare Bearden, who created works of art “celebrating the black American experience, which he integratedinto greater American modernism”. Bearden is best known for his richly textured collages, and was also prolific in experimenting with all different mediumsand styles (http://www.theartstory.org/ar tist-bearden-romare.htm).
Elissa Strauss and Lori Hecker are excited to take over as the program’s new Directors, along with Co-Chairs Lisa Izes, Rebecca Rikon, and Stacey Rosenkranz.
We welcome previous and new volunteers. Through a training session, you will learn about the artist, the elements of art, art project(s), and how to present to the students. New volunteers will be matched with mentors. All volunteers should attend one of the two training sessions, and a link to the video recording will be made available for those who cannot attend either.
