About the Event

Join us on Tuesday, March 19 at ARE's LGBTQ+ Center for an evening of creativity! Drawing inspiration from a favorite song or lyrics, learn how to create thumbnail studies and how to use the written word to inform illustrations. Participants will delight in experimenting with a variety of art mediums, led by artist Ocean Salazar. All materials and pizza will be provided! This event is free, but we do ask that you please RSVP!

This workshop is brought to you through a partnership between the LGBTQ+ Center and the Peter Bullough Foundation. PBF events this season are graciously sponsored by First Bank and the Marion Park Lewis Foundation for the Arts.

About the Artist

Born in Colombia, Ocean Salazar grew up in Miami Beach with a love for the macabre, literature, and the sea. They studied at Sofia Art Academy for six years and graduated from Miami-Dade College with an Associate in Arts degree in the summer of 2019. They also studied at Visual Arts Passage between the years 2021-2023 under the mentorships of Dale Stephanos, John English, and Sterling Hundley. As of now, they currently reside in Miami. They work at the Perez Art Museum as a Teaching-Artist.

Ocean Salazar’s work encapsulates a self-titled and self-defined genre called Dark Tropical – where the glitz, the vibrancy, and the allure of a tropical paradise coexists with the things that go bump in the night.

Even when those things are ourselves.
