Ya'qub Shabazz is a highly skilled teaching artist with a passion for exploring the relationship between contemporary art and African aesthetics. His ability to express himself through various mediums such as oil painting, wood carving, and woodblock printing, as well as his knowledge of the works of renowned Black American artists like Lois Mailou Jones, Charles White, and Aaron Douglas, make him an invaluable asset when it comes to presenting dynamic creative experiences.
Ya'qub's classes combine fun & education to teach young kids acrylic painting techniques, exploring color & shape. Students learn from Ya'qub & finish each class with a sense of accomplishment & appreciation for art & art history.
