What’s Ya Crown? A Youth Art Workshop for Basquiat @ Workshop SLC |  |  |

Youth Art Workshop Celebrating Basquiat
In honor of Black History month we celebrate the historical figures, ancestors and legendary creators of our joined history.

Of the greats in art you cannot forget the iconic crowns of Jean Michel Basquait, the self portraits and the colors that charge your mind with wonder. In this family workshop we ask you to think who in your life needs to be reminded of their crown? All of us!

So in this workshop you will work as a family to create a scene of crowns for each family member.

Take your family portrait on site, print it out and create those images using the language of Basquait. Is your dad your superhero? Is your dog your favorite creature? How can you incorporate the artistic expressions of Basquait in your family portrait? Decide together who and what you want to honor and create.

When you’re all done look at how you’ve come together to create a piece expressing what unity and creativity can produce.
