About the instructor: Kassidy Penso is a multidisciplinary artist from the East Bay Area, California. She holds a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the Laguna College of Art and Design. In her work she explores individual versus collective perception of reality through painting, often incorporating collage and found objects. She considers her work a reflection of identity, beliefs, and experiences. Kassidy’s teaching and painting inform one another, believing art making is an often undervalued form of learning; sharing and collaborating are essential aspects of creating that allow people to empathize with one another, empower people to express their ideas, and pursue their vision.

As both a gay man and a person of mixed heritage, Fonseca used his work…
Loitering is traditionally considered the preserve of delinquents, teenagers, and miscreants. Generally speaking, those up to no good. Of course, some are freer to dillydally than others. As Ross Gay reminds us in his incisive essay Loitering Is Delightful (which the author has kindly permitted us to use here), “the darker your skin, the more likely you are to be “loitering.” As Gay goes on to point out, for people of color, any public display of “non-productive delight” – from loitering…
“Legacy: Rocking the Nation (RTN), 30 Years of Creativity” takes a historic look at the origins of a cultural collective manifesting the four elements of hip-hop.
