Broward arts flourish with virtual events

Business for the Arts Broward continues to support the local art landscape with a series of virtual art classes. The first is No Fear Art – Drawing Edition, which promises to help participants not only release their fears of creating but also enjoy the process.

Leading this creative journey is artist Lori Pratico (pictured above), a self-taught artist who has done live painting and murals at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and Miami Boat Show and is known for her “Girl Noticed” mural project. She recently launched a project to feature female Holocaust survivors living in Broward County through a stage presentation, large-scale murals and paintings on canvas.

During the session, Pratico will explore self-criticism with a drawing experience and share simple techniques. Participants are encouraged to bring three or more sheets of 8 ½” by 11” paper, a #2 pencil, a pen or fine point marker (preferably black), two or more Q-tips and three or more tree leaves

The class is May 28, 4-5 p.m. and is $20 per screen. Click here to purchase tickets.
