ProjectArt Classes at the Avondale Library

ProjectArt’s free classes continue through May at the Avondale Branch Library. Local, professional artists teach classes aligned with the National Arts Education Association standards and are informed by the teaching artist’s personal artistic practice. ProjectArt courses are fun and imaginative, cultivate a love of learning and take place on Wednesdays and Thursdays, from 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

ProjectArt classes, designed for youth 8-18 are led by Dutana Dago. She is a Cincinnati-based and Minneapolis-raised artist. Dago’s work is not only a form of resistance but also of acceptance. Her work is culturally and socially connected to Black identity. She aims to celebrate while simultaneously confronting the conversations surrounding Black erasure, identity, race and gender. As part of this, Dago advocates for Black creativity to be recognized in the contemporary world, shifting the gaze of what and who an artist can be.

Materials for ProjectArt are provided for all students, and enrollment is ongoing throughout the year. Registration is required in advance, and space is limited. 

To participate, all youth MUST register at ProjectArt Cincinnati – AfterSchool HQ

Sign up today to attend free weekly classes at ProjectArt.
