FemArt launches impactful educational outreach program
FemArt Gallery proudly launched our outreach program, "Women of Color in the Arts Speak" on Monday, November 29, 2021, at Sandalwood High School. Our first speaker, Cheryl McCain, shared her personal journey as a professional artist with over 35 students who were offered a one year membership with FemArt to gain more access to art classes, mentorship, exhibitions and portfolio building.
Our second speaker was Danisha Edwards who engaged her own art class in an open discussion about her own career. Her class sat in awe of this teacher sharing her personal art journey and showing the class samples of her sculptures. This program proved that representations can have a profound effect on our students who are aspiring to become artists but don't often see artists who look like themselves.
If you are interested in getting involved and helping FemArt to make a positive difference in our society please consider volunteering for the Outreach Committee, donate art supplies, raise funds for this nonprofit, join our Board of Directors and Chair one of our many committees available, or be a speaker/representative for Women of Color. We welcome all who want to make a positive impact on our culture and community.
welcome FemArt Youth!
Nadia Harris - President, FemArt Youth
FemArt is so proud of our newest leader - Nadia Harris. Nadia is the President of FemArt Youth.
This new membership offers young artists who are between the ages of 10 and 18 opportunities to build portfolios and skills that will increase their likelihood for admission into art schools and colleges that will enhance their art careers.
Nadia has been with FemArt for over a year and has made an incredible splash in our FemArt pond. She is confident, bold and exudes passion for her art...and that is why we are so pleased to announce her as the President of FemArt Youth.
