This heritage collage workshop explores storytelling through mixed-media collage with historical imagery. Participants will learn about the discovery and legitimate use of historical images, observe a demonstration, and view artwork made by the artist instructor. A hands-on session follows, covering the use of mixed-media collage including examples of methods and projects as well as reference materials for the classroom. For grade 1-12 educators and all levels of artists, the workshop is designed for art teachers but can be useful for teachers across disciplines.

Presenter: Lavett Ballard is an artist, educator, art historian, curator, and author whose work has been included in literary, film, and theatre productions, as well as exhibitions nationwide. As an artist-archivist, Ballard recalls and reclaims the history of people of African descent. Prints are collaged, painted, destroyed and reborn to create a reimagined visual narrative to the history portrayed Adding paint, charcoal, and oil pastel, images are deconstructed and layered on weathered wooden fence panels. The fences are a symbolic reference, as both border and barricade, to how people are kept in and out, just as racial and gender identities do the same. For more information visit www.lavettbeart.com.
