Expression and Experience of Self-Taught Artists of the African American South

Students will explore the creative work of self-taught African American visual artists and musicians (1865-present) to enrich their study of African-American history from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement. Beginning with a washboard as a surface, students will utilize found object materials to make visual art assemblages inspired by the visual style of Thornton Dial Sr.
