Adri Norris is a Denver-based artist whose family hails from Barbados. With a less than typical background – immigrant, international boarding school student, military veteran, queer artist- Norris brings the entirety of her experience to her work. Her paintings of women in history are an educational tool to get students, old and young, to think more deeply about the past and about the power of diversity.
Norris’ workshop at Union Hall will begin with a presentation about women in history, focusing on those who have been left out of the myth of America. The next hour and a half will include time for participants to dig deeper into the histories discussed and to create their own collages using materials provided by the artist. This workshop is free and open to people of all ages, and is limited to 30 participants. Participants will leave with their own artwork.
