About Blackbird Studio:
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 the k-12 core curriculum. 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 hundreds of students annually.
Students will learn how to convey ideas through symbolic portraits of themselves or their classmates. Students will write and sketch out a plan for their portraits. We will provide lights, backdrops, props and more to bring their ideas to life. Photo shoots can be completed on campus or at a location of their choice. Artists focusing on conceptual portraiture will be introduced to offer inspiration. Photos can be paired with poems or narratives in the format of books or prints for display at your school. Students can express their individual ideas or create photographic art around a particular theme.
