You're so talented!
This group is a comfortable, safe, and supportive space for all gender expressions and LGBTQIA+ creatives who want to use their creative energy to share art and meet new friends. Anything created by the learner is welcome - this includes photography, drawing and sketching, painting, poetry, sculptures, clay-making, sticker-making, knitting, animations, digital art, etc. Each week, learners can socialize, share their art daily, talk about gender, coming out, and identity. There will also...
This class is taught in English.
~Creativity - be inspired and encouraged to create by one another. ~Social Skills - socialize with fellow LGBTQ+ friends in a safe and encouraging environment. ~Confidence - sharing artwork with the world takes courage. Everyone will have a chance to share and to shine.
I identify as queer and use they/she pronouns. I am active in and passionate about supporting my local LGBTQIA+ creative community, as well as encouraging LGBTQIA+ youth as an arts educator. I am also a performing musician and mixed media artist who has shown work in galleries in Los Angeles, Boulder, and Denver.
Give everyone a chance! If you have 10 creations you want to share with the group, please only post 1-2 photos of your work. This allows everyone else's creations and posts to be seen in the group. We have 3 key rules: Be Kind, Be Safe, and Be Respectful. Be Kind - Help all learners feel welcome and included. Learners from all over the world, with different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, abilities, gender identities, religions, and body types, participate in our Group. Always be nice and make others, especially new learners, know that they belong and are welcome. Teasing, name-calling, or bullying anybody in our community? Nope. Not happening here Be Safe - Keep your personal information private and never ask other learners for theirs. Personal things are personal. We want to keep you safe on Outschool, but we also want YOU to understand how to be safe when you're meeting other learners or teachers. Keep your full name, home address, gaming or social media name, email, and school name private. Be Respectful - Treat others how you want to be treated. Keep language clean and information you share safe. If you wouldn't say it or share with your grandma, don't do it here. Swear words, racy videos, and violent images or artworks are not allowed. Breaking the 3 key rules will not be tolerated.
