Painting: Beyond the Canvas

Last spring, Danielle taught in the Gallery/ Studio Program at the Brooklyn Museum. Danielle’s class, Painting: Beyond the Canvas, was an opportunity for young artists ages 8-10 years old to experiment with a variety of media. Danielle’s syllabus emphasized the connection between art making and gallery visits as a means to encourage young artists to explore and express their own identities. The class visited Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving, Eric N. Mack: Lemme Walk Across the Room, One: Egúngún, and more. In response to these exhibitions, students have made mixed media paintings, prints, dyed fabric, fabric collages and mosaics.
