Events for Wednesday, Jun 28, 2017
B.Strong is a 27-year-old up and coming singer / songwriter hailing from Tallahassee, Florida. She made her performing debut with Black on Black Rhyme’s BackTalk Poetry Troupe. Since then, she went on to teach herself to play the guitar and has performed in several major cities throughout the southeast United States. Her live performances are highlighted by her use of loop pedals to create instrumentals live onstage using only vocals and her guitar.
Currently, B.Strong is working on her debut release, set to drop later this year. She delivers an acoustic R&B sound accented with a smooth hip hop flow. Heavily influenced by her slam poetry roots, as well as Lauryn Hill, John Legend, and Amy Winehouse, B.Strong is certainly an artist to keep an eye and an ear out for!

A botanical art studio class designed for the student to create, during the six week
class, a series of three individual botanical flower drawings/paintings. Each work will
be inspired by a red, a white and a blue flower. And each student will have the
opportunity to work in the medium of their choice. From graphite, colored pencil,
gauache, watercolor, including English-dry brush to pen and colored inks. The resulting works will form the basis of an informal exhibition and a reception at the Mobile Botanical Gardens to celebrate 4th of July.
