Loving Wyoming

 

 

Loving Wyoming is a project that the Wyoming Fine Arts Center has created to facilitate celebrations of the LGBTQIA+ community while teaching our students the power of acceptance, love, and courage through the lens of queer creatives. This will take place through curriculum in our art classes taught by queer teachers inspired by LGBTQIA+ art history, ending with a celebratory art exhibition at The Center during pride month.

The objectives of this program are:

  • To create a more inclusive community
  • Continue to teach students the importance and power of love and acceptance
  • Share work on social media to spread awareness to the city at large 
  • Collaborating with queer creatives and giving artists a platform to show work
  • Create an environment of diversity and inclusion that builds a stronger team and city

    Students will create their very own fabulous self-portrait inspired by queer figural  painters. By painting over photos and collaging colorful backgrounds, each student  will be able to create a gorgeous piece of art that celebrates their unique identity.  Students should bring a fairly large photo of themselves or someone they’d like to  paint (fitting on an 11” x 14” canvas)  

    **Class size is limited to Art Room occupancy
