Based out of Charlotte, NC, Black Bird Studio offers unique art education experiences for students of all ages. Our teaching artists are professional creatives who are passionate about making an impact while sharing what they do best. We offer one-day workshops and multi-day residencies in a variety of mediums that connect to k-12 core curricula. We value high quality final products and we have that vibe that the students just love! We are a multifaceted mobile art studio.
Grant funding from the Arts and Science Council enables us to offer free programs to students across Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools who would not otherwise have access.
Our partnerships with private schools, libraries, cultural centers and community events allow us to reach thousands of students annually.

Students will enjoy building their own "affirmation boards" in this laid back, mixed media or digital art program. Students will be asked to consider their greatest strengths and focus on what makes them unique as they build layered portraits or abstracted works that integrate positive affirmations that will remind them of their best qualities. Affirmations can also take the form of goals, wishes and dreams. This program builds student confidence and self awareness.
ASC Goals: Teacher Professional Development, Middle School Transition, High School Graduation Rate
