Academy Mask Policy – Winter 2022 *updated Jan 5, 2022

 

Due to the rise in Covid cases in our area, the Academy Center of the Arts requires that all students participating in our classes  regardless of vaccination status wear a mask while on our campus.  All staff are required to wear masks while on site regardless of vaccination status.


Josephine Baker was an American born French entertainer, aided the French Resistance during World War II and was a civil rights activist.  Join Christina as she guides you through this painting course inspired by the art, beauty, and strength of Josephine Baker.  Each student will complete an inspired painting to take home with them.

All supplies are included.

 

 

Instructor: Christina Davis

Christina Davis is a local muralist and art instructor for Blue Ridge Montessori School and Onward Academy this Spring. She  promotes enthusiasm for learning  new mediums through popular subject matters like landscapes, strong female figures ,and anime!  Her studio pieces have been exhibited at the Academy Center for the Fine Arts and participated in First Fridays on many occasions. She works on numerous community projects to bring more color , accessibility , and diversity through art.
Her passion for expressing her identity led her to become a self taught artist. When she isn’t teaching art, drinking coffee , or spending time with her daughter: She loves to create pieces that reflect her voice, color, and individualism . Her work captures the most fleeting moments, and the way she looks at the world. Focus on most of her series starts with a face or emotion, then she starts improvising during the process, and dark contour lines.
