Join us at the Children’s Alley art-making studio for a day of creativity and cultural exploration with GOGO MOAD and Haitian artist Asser Saint-Val. Don’t miss this chance to immerse your kids in Haitian art and culture while fostering their creativity. This year, Saint-Val will guide participants through an engaging “ti kay” project, where they’ll craft their own miniature Haitian houses inspired by the iconic architecture of Little Haiti. Families will delve into Haitian art techniques, celebrating the community’s heritage through vibrant crafts and colorful patterns. This event promises a rich, hands-on experience, allowing children and their families to connect with Haitian culture in a tangible and memorable way.

ASSER SAINT-VAL was born in Port-de-Paix, Haiti, and is an award-winning South Florida-based multidisciplinary artist, painter, sculptor, installation artist, graphic designer, and musician. He has had several solo and group shows throughout South Florida, North Carolina, and Tennessee, as well as in cities such as New York, Washington, D.C., Fort Myers, and Boca Raton. Internationally, Saint-Val has exhibited in Argentina and throughout the Caribbean, including Haiti, the Bahamas, Grenada, Aruba, Havana, Cuba’s Santiago de Cuba, and Puerto Rico. In 2017, an installation of his work was selected to represent Paris Perfume’s new cologne, Pour Un Homme CARON Sport, during Miami Art Week. Saint-Val is a 2006 and 2011 recipient of the Consortium Award for mixed-media paintings, and was awarded an Artist Access Grant and the Diaspora Vibe Cultural Incubator grant in 2017, among other accolades. He has BFAs in painting and graphic design from the New World School of the Arts and the University of Florida, and his work is represented in many private and public collections.
