Art of the Athlete is a museum education program that provides engagement for UO student-athletes through the visual arts and service to children with disabilities. This past summer, student-athletes enrolled in a studio class taught by JSMA director of education Lisa Abia-Smith where they learned diverse art techniques, including painting, mixed media sculpture, and photo transfer. They studied the work of contemporary portrait painter Kehinde Wiley and created their own version of a “Wiley-inspired” self-portrait, placing themselves in a classical pose or one found in their individual sports.
