Zoom classrooms a blur? Frazzled from a day of in-person learning? Ms. Bria puts some of the creativity back in school, leading students through art projects online. Clear the kitchen table and join her online to learn some fun ways of turning household items into works of art.

Create a framed self-portrait using some of your favorite household items! Miss Bria will guide students through the development of a self-portrait, along with a unique frame on which to mount it. Students will learn the basics of portraiture, as well as assemble a simple frame decorated with collected personal treasures.

Bria Ansara is a musician, visual artist, and art educator, who moved to Key West in 2008. She is currently leading the “Schools at the Studios” program at The Studios of Key West, which offers a curriculum of museum studies and art lessons to school aged students. Her favorite medium is pen and ink, and her favorite subjects include local flora, fauna, and architecture.

Tech Housekeeping

1. Students/parents will need to sign up for a free Zoom account.

2. Parents may want to prepare the workspace with loose newspaper to protect the surface.

3. We ask that family members in the background keep their voices low, as students will not mute their microphones in this session. We encourage an open conversation, so minimal background noise is appreciated.

2. You will receive a link to join the meeting in your automatic email and a reminder 15 minutes before the session.
