Fantastical Hair: Exploring the work of Lorna Simpson
Summer 2019 I had the privilege of partnering with Freedom Arts & Education (http://www.faecstl.org/ ) as a teaching artist. Below are images from a camp workshop where I introduced youth ages 5-8 to Lorna Simpson's collage work. We talks about hair and how it can make powerful & fun, statements about the wearer. I provided them with a 4x6" piece of watercolor paper with a face cut from a magazine on it. They were encouraged use their imaginations to create fantastical hair!
above: images are of students Lorna Simpson in spired "Fantastical Hair" portraits, 2019.
