Art from Home Class with Liz Ndoye - HONORING LATINO AMERICAN ARTISTS

ART AT THE HOBOKEN LIBRARY 

HONORING LATINO AMERICAN ARTISTS


During the month of September, the art class will do projects that celebrate Latino American artists and their work. In each class, a Latino artist will be introduced, their work will be discussed and viewed, and a project inspired by each particular artist will be offered for students to work on. The same artist will be our inspiration in the morning and afternoon classes. 

 

SEPTEMBER 23, 2020


Aliza Nisenbaum will be our final artist. Born in Mexico City,  Nisenbaum paints intimate, moving portraits of  Latin  American immigrants. The subjects of her recent work are often undocumented immigrants, portrayed in bold colors against patterned interiors and private spaces. Discussion of Nissanbaum’s work may trigger memories of family histories and origin myths that will help them create the art project of the day.

Students will be encouraged to share stories and tales of their own ancestors and the immigrant or enslaved history of their families. They will then create water color story or portrait paintings that convey a feeling of their pride in their ancestral beginnings.
