About this event

In Family Stories: A Painting Workshop, participants will explore family histories by making drawings and paintings based on family photographs. Artwork in graphite, charcoal, and water-based media will be developed in a supportive environment. Beginners are welcome. 

Instructor Terry Plater is a Black American artist who is drawn to subjects that are defined by questions of equity as well as ideas of beauty. Her work – whether figure, portrait, or landscape – speaks to singular stories as well as shared histories and positions itself to, in the words of the late Bayard Rustin, speak truth to power.

Family Stories is made possible with the support of the Community Arts Partnership.

The workshop is free, but spaces are limited and registration is required. Get free tickets here
