"Empress of the Blues", mixed-media collage, Romare Bearden (Photo: Smithsonian American Art Museum)
Romare Bearden (1911-1988) worked in many mediums from oil and watercolor to various forms of printmaking. He is best known for his bold mixed-media collages and photomontages that feature urban scenes, rural life, and the jazz scene. After an illustrated lecture on his work, students try their hand creating Bearden-inspired mixed-media compositions. Development of personal style and visual storytelling are encouraged. Students benefit from group critique.
