The Art Room: Learn, Laugh, Create
The Art Room is a recurring program, open to anyone, where participants can learn the basics of drawing and painting in a safe and fun environment. Students embark on a journey of self-discovery by exploring their own painting preferences and studying painting form and structure through a progressive set of activities. Through the classes, we hope to promote Latino culture by teaching designs inspired by and reflective of traditional Latin American art. Artistic expression is a vital part of Latino culture, which is renowned for its colorful, bold sensibility. Each class is instructed by a local artist, who encourages participants to embrace their creativity while teaching them art principals like form, color, and balance. While the emphasis is on Hispanic traditions, the works created reflect the diversity of the students and the community at large. Participation in The Art Room is free of charge. This program is funded by the Ohio Arts Council.
