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 love working with clay. In this program, students will create their own masterpiece using clay. The works will be fired and students will have the opportunity to add glaze or acrylic paint to their final pieces. The program can be approached in two ways – as an exhibition of individual pieces or as a collaborative installation working around a theme, such as flowers or abstract shapes, for a larger display. Poetry and/or written reflections can be integrated.
