Art has always played a vital role in society during uncertain times. It offers an outlet to react to current events and often encourages social change, while also spreading hope and awareness. From the art of the Civil Rights movement of the ’60s to the current Black Lives Matter movement, and art from the 1918 Pandemic to Covid, take a deeper dive into what makes art so powerful and effective during these times.

Allison Brown

Leader

Allison is in her Senior year, studying Art Education at SUNY New Paltz. She has a concentration in drawing and painting, as well as a Deaf Studies minor. Often creating art centered around emotions, she finds art does a wonderful job of self-expression especially when words don't quite do the trick. Allison loves how art can harness all sorts of emotions and turn them into something wonderfully beautiful. She hopes this workshop will help others not only gain a better understanding of art but also a better understanding of the role it plays in society. Allison has run this workshop in the Spring of 2021, and is excited to be back.
