EAST welcomes a new artist this Sunday, BUCK!, for an aesthetic graffiti workshop. Using Buck’s unconventional approach to creating more visual experiences with his artworks, the kids will use their imaginations to paint some wild canvases. Buck will talk about what motivates him with the kids to help guide this lively session.
A Cultural crusader through visual arts, BUCK! is a multifaceted creative with work reflecting humanity’s motivating forces, while creating dialogue for its viewers. Raised in Baltimore, Rodney Herring (aka BUCK!) thrived at Hampton University majoring in art. Soon after landing in DC, he found his artistic home. BUCK! utilizes passages of text and varied typography layered with boldly silhouetted or highly contrasted figures to explore the various layers of the human experience.
The Eastern Market Art Series & Teachings – EAST – is an ongoing series that brings artists and children (between 6 and 10 years old) together to explore a different craft or medium each month. Each workshop has volunteer opportunities for youth & teens (11 years old and up) to help support the workshop. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Our program is made possible by the Near Southeast Community Partners and the CSX Mitigation Fund as well as the Capitol Hill Community Foundation.
