BLACK GIRLS WHO PAINT is a safe space created to support and empower black women painters as we navigate through our artistic endeavors by promoting sisterhood, community, and positive representation. Although we tend to be few and far in between as we dig deeper into our artistic journeys, black women painters are a force to be reckoned with. Representation needs to reflect this. As such, BLACK GIRLS WHO PAINT is also a platform formed by a black girl (woman) who paints and believes in increasing our visibility. Not only will the versatility of our art be showcased through weekly themes, meaningful conversations and relationships with other black girl and woman painters will be sparked, as well.
