This weekend at ODU the art education department is doing a collaborative art project for Martin Luther King day. Folk artist Mama Girl came and had an artist talk with the student body on Sat. 1-16-2010. She is from the Eastern Shore and creates all of her art with newspaper, glue, and paint. After the artist talk we went to work in the classroom teaching the ODU students her techniques. Everyone in the workshop is creating a figure and on Monday we are going to paint the figures and put them all together to create the march for Martin Luther King. Mama Girl created Martin who will be leading the march. I thought this is an excellent collaborative project and I can not wait to see the final results!!!!! It will be on display in the visual arts building at ODU.
