SATURDAY ART ADVENTURES
Saturday, March 10 | 1 - 3pm
Tell your story through art.
Join your Saturday Art Adventure guide for a tour through Gerald and Jim Yellowhawk’s exhibit, Ate Chinhintku Kici Wakpazopi.
Learn about what inspired their beautiful and bold artwork. Take a look at modern ledger art and learn how it became a popular style of art for the Lakota. Get inspired to tell your own story through art.
Then head over to the art classrooms to create a visual representation of your own story. You can create a story that happened recently, in your lifetime or just today! Use geometric shapes inspired by Yellowhawks’ art to tell your story through art. Paint with bright colors, circles and graphic images to create artwork resembling the Yellowhawks’ style while being uniquely your own.
We will be using bright and bold colors found in the exhibit to create our own stories. You will be able to paint images that describe your life story, your year story or your day. We'll be painting so bring an old shirt or wear clothes that we can get dirty.
