    One of my @afterschoolmatters students studying Sarah Morris. This summer our #ericsolorioacademy apprentices studied the works of three hard edged abstract artists, @samantha_bittman , Odili Donald Odita and #sarahmorris and were asked to have a #conversation with a favorite painting of theirs through a painting of their own, attempting to speak their #language through their own visual #interpretation. In the end, the teens will organize a presentation of their finished works, and hopefully the school will install it as a #permanentinstallation #publicart #painting #inspiration #launchpad #chicagoyouth #afterschoolmatters #contemporarypainting #teachingartist #civics #southsidechicago #teensmatter (at Eric Solorio Academy High School)
