Join OneTable in partnership with The Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church and The Temple for an interactive virtual art gathering to explore how art unites us. We’ll be led by Atlanta-based artist Brian the Creator in a hands-on draw-along — creating personalized art inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King. During this final act of the workweek, we’ll get messy and embrace the imperfect by creating with charcoal.
Our time will include Q&A with Brian, artistic guidance as we go, and prompts to inspire confidence in your creative abilities. After an hour of art, you’ll be welcomed to experience a unique interfaith Shabbat service led by The Temple followed by a choir and closing led by Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Please be sure to check out the materials below and arrive prepared to begin and participate:
– Newspaper to keep your space clean
– Watercolor paper (9 in. x 12 in. ), posterboard works great too!
– Hard Charcoal pencil (557-B recommended)
– Natural Charcoal stick 9-15 mm
– 1 compressed white charcoal stick
– 1 compressed graphite stick (extra smooth soft assorted recommended)
– 1 blending tortillion
– 1 foam brush (1 inch)
On a first-come first-service basis, participants will be invited to pick up free or subsidized art-kits from Sam Flax in Midtown Atlanta. Or feel free to join us from afar with your own supplies.
