Paint My Piece

September 22nd, 2021 at 6 p.m.

Youth Artist Bridget Brodie led participants through a virtual painting experience, recreating her art piece: Community

Created in response to the Hope & Justice prompt More than One, Brodie’s goal “was to make art that represented my community of people, which in this case was the queer community. As I worked on this drawing, I reflected on my community and what it meant to me. I had to think about my identity and experience and emulate those thoughts in my art.
