Buy Some Art! Send this Body Positive Activist to Grad School!

Hello!

My name is Chloe and I am a painter and body positive activist. I am passionate about changing the way our culture thinks about the body. My work explores experiences of body shame, recovery and body joy. I want to take these studies to the graduate level and if you buy some art, you can help me get there.

A little about me: After graduating from Cornish College of the Arts in 2013, I went on to create To Be Brave: Ending Body Shame. I began by addressing my own history of anorexia and used the self-portrait as a way to see myself with kindness. I went on to work with eleven different women who are survivors of sexual assault and eating disorders. Their stories of survival and resilience were incredibly inspiring to me. I have launched large art shows of this work with performers and have brought the show to college campuses.

 To Be Brave: Ending Body Shame led me to co-founding The Body Joy Project artist collective. In collaboration with some amazing artists, I am continuing to  explore body shame, body joy and everything in between.

I have accomplished allot since my BFA, but now I am ready to take these studies to the graduate level at Laguna College of Art and Design. I want to refine my painting technique and research practices with some of the best figure painters in the country. I also want to study pedagogy and gain experience teaching at the college level. Grad school will afford me many opportunities and you can help me get there.

I’ve applied for what I can and now I’m asking for your support. But unlike a scholarship committee, I can offer you lots of rewards.
