Event Details

Lukman Ahmad’s artwork reflects the Kurdish experience, as well as the human experience. He combines symbolism, imagination, color, and rhythm, to transport the viewer into the world he lived and the emotions he witnessed as a refugee. Ahmad’s homage for the Kurdish land is portrayed in his acrylic painting style through the use of cultural motifs such as the sun, sunflowers, horses, and doves. Learn how to tell your story through art in this unique painting workshop with Lukman.  Paint alongside the artist as you learn more about his story, inspiration, and artistic influences. During this interactive lesson you will tell your own story through your art, incorporating symbolism, personal motifs, and painting styles and patterns similar to & inspired by Ahmad’s expressive paintings. For ages 15 – adult.
