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.

How do you see yourself? How do you think others view you? How can a photograph express these concepts? These are just a few questions that will be posed to your students during this thoughtful and reflective program that focuses on individual expression of ideas and self exploration. Freeflow writing activities will inspire concepts for the development of a Self Portrait and an Anti-Self Portrait.
