Growing Artists

Without a doubt Obsidian Arts is developing some of the boldest travel experiences on the market.  Our goal is to bring the global black experience to you in intimate and intelligent ways.  We plan the trip and now work with professional agents to implement. Join Us!

Brimming with intellect and artistically-focused insight too many black artists are not enjoying the fruits of the talent they harbor.  

We are dedicated to growing the pool of professional black artists.  If you are an artist that wants to grow check us out.

From art exhibitions to art workshops to art outings we are building a cohesive community among residents who have a strong and growing interest in black art and culture.  

We ask that you join us for some activities.

If you want to know what African American Art is, this class will answer the question. We will examine one of the most exciting periods in American Art; the art created during the turbulent 1960s. We will survey the work of revolutionary artists trying to create a new black aesthetic. These artists abandoned classical artistic tenants and the mainstream as they sought to find a new way to incorporate their feelings as black people into their artistic expression.
