In this art class that merges drawing and performance, youth ages 13–18 will have a special opportunity to work with the Baltimore-based artist Zoë Charlton and The Union’s associate director of performing arts, Denise Chapman. Charlton will lead a drawing activity in which youth will use portraiture to highlight their features and celebrate their individuality. Following the activity, Chapman will lead exercises to put the drawings in motion, exploring how portraiture helps us understand the body in space and how visual art can support character development.
New Voices is a performing arts program for youth ages 13–18. The program is dedicated to instilling hope and helping young people see past their circumstances, own their voice, and envision something greater for their future. Art Club students in the specified age range are welcome to participate in this New Voices session.
Charlton’s exhibition The Ipseity Project will be on view at The Union beginning September 7. Please note this exhibition contains nudity.
