Create collage portraits representing the legacy and significance of one’s life! Join local artist and LVA’s 2021 Emerging Artist Jaylin Stewart as she leads you through a project centered around creating hopeful, inspiring and radiant images. Inspired by our current special exhibition Promise, Witness, Remembrance, this virtual workshop invites participants to uplift loved ones by making art with household materials. Explore the symbolism of halos in art history and headdress/crowns African culture and learn more about Jaylin’s own work as you engage in visual storytelling celebrating important figures in your own life.
