FORAYS INTO FANTASY, Meet The Artist: MICHELINE HESS Kids Workshop
Please join us on Saturday, July 8th at 1:00pm to Meet Award – winning Illustrator and Visual Afrofuturist, Micheline Hess during our Kids Workshop (Ages 6-12) based on her past solo exhibition, FORAYS INTO FANTASY that took place at The Children’s Art Carnival Gallery.
Bring your young people for a fun filled afternoon of Storytelling and Character Design with Micheline Hess.
FORAYS INTO FANTASY explored fantastical worlds that are melanin-rich, and vibrant with strong protagonists, laying out the welcome mat for Black people who love fantasy adventure. It was a way of telling kids that YES, you exist in these worlds too, and not just as side characters, henchmen, or comedy relief. You exist in the center. You are the main-characters. You are the heroes who can save and create your own worlds.
