About the Art Project:
High school students and recent graduating seniors are invited to join this free workshop to learn how to make outdoor murals on a flat surface. Students will be offered a $100 stipend for participating. Participation is limited to 15 artists.
During a three-day workshop, lead artist Yazz Atmore will work with the students to develop design ideas for a site-specific ground mural and work with students to sketch designs and prepare for painting outdoors. Once the designs are ready, Yazz will lead the artists in painting sessions at the park.
The artwork will be installed on the west side of Great Lawn Park near the sundial sculpture at E. 6th Avenue and Uinta Street for three months or more (weather depending) and honored with an official ribbon cutting in late summer (date to be announced). We will offer guided and self-guided tours of the Lowry Art + Architecture Loop for the community to enjoy and get some exercise while enjoying our creative community!
About Lead Artist:
Yazz Atmore is just a scattered-brain barefoot babe who likes to dance with words, play in the spirit world and dabble in art magic. Having created her own degree from Metropolitan State University, Yazz obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Supporting High-Risk Youth through the Arts.
Yazz is a community organizer, creator, and educator in Denver, Colorado. She continues to mentor and create with young artists as they explore their lives, stories, and passions through the beauty of art. Constantly inspired by the youth + community she works with, Yazz continues to develop and deepen her own artistry as an analog collagist and muralist. Her art explores and dabbles in the themes of spirituality, ancient and ancestral wisdom, nature, and afro-futurism through storytelling, collating, and the building/ re-building of worlds. Her work is also heavily influenced by her spiritual journey as she loves exploring the spirit world with God, Ancestors & her Spirit Team. As an expressionist intuitive mixed media artist, she creates breathtaking hand-cut collages and digital works using bright bold colors, metallic paints, and gold leaf.
