Free Graf­fiti Art work­shop for Youth age 8–18 with Guest Artist Rigel Richardson (Insta @rigelfish)

Loca­tion: Pitts­burgh Learning Commons @ Commu­nity Forge

If you feel like your mind races and your body stores up impul­sive energy and you just want to DO some­thing? Local Pitts­burgh artist Rigel Richardson will show youth how to unleash that energy through mark-making using drawing mate­rials and paint markers on paper and canvas. Rigel will walk youth through the process she uses in her own artwork and demon­strates how chan­neling move­ment and feeling can help anyone express them­selves and find a little more peace of mind in the process.

This program is hosted by the Hemi­spheric Conver­sa­tions Urban Art Project. HCUAP is working in part­ner­ship with Rivers of Steel Arts and The Univer­sity of Pitts­burgh, to galva­nize the rela­tion­ship between post-indus­­trial envi­ron­ments and urban arts.

Thank you to our supporters:
Penn­syl­vania Part­ners in the Arts, Rivers of Steel Arts, Univer­sity of Pitts­burgh, the Amer­ican Studies Asso­ci­a­tion, Univer­sity of Pitts­burgh Center for Latin Amer­ican Studies, and Collecting Knowl­edge Pitts­burgh.
