artistic noise: art from the juvenile detention system and beyond Pieces of Me
Next Generation Center
This introductory project encouraged participants to explore emotive portraiture in black and white. Students learned charcoal techniques and improved their drawing abilities while examining powerful black and white drawings by Kathe Kollwitz, Georges Seurat, Adrian Piper and others. As students developed foundational art skills they also exposed compelling feelings in faces and other pieces of the body.
