Several members of the Kansas City Chiefs defensive line recently met with a group of students from Alta Vista High School for an art workshop hosted as part of the team’s celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, which kicks off each year on September 15. During the event, local Kansas City artist José Faus taught a lesson on culture and artistic expression and guided the group members as they created their own unique drawings.
Faus, a Colombian-born muralist whose work is featured at Arrowhead Stadium, encouraged the students and players to avoid thinking and instead use their intuition to express themselves. At the end of the event, the students and linemen combined the 24 drawings they created to make one large free-form art piece.
The Arrowhead Art Collection workshop marked the fifth consecutive year that the Chiefs have collaborated with Alta Vista High School on a project for Hispanic Heritage Month, which the team also celebrates with its annual Hispanic Heritage Month Fútbol Americano game.
