Join us in creating a story built from your imagination, materials and hands. In this six week series we will take on three projects; paint/cut, textiles/stitch, wood/build. Here you will have the opportunity to experiment and explore your own personal collection of materials, along with all that SPACE's studio has to offer. We will look at artists who made it onto the pages of art books and along with those I admire on Instagram; Pae White, Sarajo Frieden, Louise Bourgouis, Tina Lynnville, Louise Nevelson, Luke O'Sullivan and more. It's Time to Create!
Students will cut, fold, tear and build their way into new forms of expression as they create 2-D and 3-D collages using magazines, construction paper, cardboard, cloth and string. They will use collage to explore self portraiture, abstract compositions, assemblage, and exquisite corpses. They will learn about how various artists use collage including Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Robert Rauschenberg, Ivan Chermayeff and Phillip Estlund.
Come learn what makes good stories tick, draw us in, and turn the page. We will use writing exercises and prompts to get our brain juices flowing, and learn how to create compelling characters, plots and settings. Students will create personal portfolios in addition to a group zine.
Coil, pinch, and slab your way to a variety of projects both functional and fun. This supportive and lively class is suited for artists of all levels and experience. New students will learn a variety of hand building techniques while the more experienced artist will continue developing their individual style. All projects will be fired and glazed.
