Celebrate Clementine Hunter, a Black folk artist from Louisiana, and create your version of her famous painting, "Zinnias in a Pot."

Clementine Hunter did not begin painting until she was in her 50s. She is called a memory artist, as her paintings were created from what she had seen. A descendant of slaves with no formal schooling, Clementine found paints and brushes left behind by a visiting artist at Melrose Plantation, where she worked as a farm laborer and cook and began painting images – on whatever she could find – of daily life around her. She created around 5,000 pieces of art, including her famous nine-panel murals depicting the life of the Creole community along the Cane River in the early twentieth century.

This program is in partnership with River Road African American Museum in Donaldsonville.
