Black History Month Celebration of Artist Lynette Yiadom-Boakye with Liz's Art from Home

We are shaking up Liz’ art classes! Liz will be live on Zoom to answer all your questions!

For the month of February Liz Cohen Ndoye will celebrate Black History Month as the main theme of her ART at HOME zoom classes. She will focus on one African or African American artist for each class.

The third artist that we will learn about is Lynette Yiadom-Boakye. Yiadom-Boakye is an extraordinary figurative artist - she paints portraits but not of real people but fictional characters that spring from her imagination. According to the NY Times her figures are “moods manifested.” There is a raw emotional power to her portraits that make them visual magnates for the viewer. After learning about her work, students will begin to sharpen their skills and understanding in how to draw the human portrait.

PLEASE NOTE: SUPPLIES WILL BE GIVEN OUT STARTING ON MONDAY FEBRUARY, 4 at 12 pm - UNTIL THEY LAST. FIND THEM ON THE LIBRARY’S GRAB AND GO SHELF AT THE MAIN BRANCH.

Registration is required (see the button below). REGISTRATION BEGINS ONE WEEK BEFORE EVENT AND REGISTRATION CLOSES 15 MINUTES BEFORE EVENT.

ONLY PEOPLE WHO REGISTER HERE WILL RECEIVE THE ZOOM LINK AND PASSWORD TO ENTER THE CLASS 15 MINUTES BEFORE THE EVENT BEGINS.
