Artists employ their special skills to express ideas and reflect views on society – a need we all share as social beings. This workshop will explore the art of Henry Bermudez, a Venezuelan-born artist who creates visually stunning works that represent his journey rebuilding a life in America.
Bermudez’s art addresses immigration issues and expresses his reverence for the mythological deities and natural world of Latin America.
A focus will be made on Bermudez’s paintings with political statements and how artworks can be utilized as tools for developing critical thinking through historical and multi-cultural contexts.
Teaching materials will be distributed for classroom use.
