Craft Youth Culture is offering Reclaiming the Material World: Reappropriating Objects from the Insignificant to the Monumental
Social Distance Sculpture Workshop. That’s a mouthful, right? The free classes run on Wednesdays, September 23, 2020 – March 28, 2021, from 4 – 5:30.
Artist Alicia Piller will guide students as they explore sculptural design and material connections from the past to the present. Students will use a variety of mixed media materials (natural & human-made), including clay, fiber, paper, metal, wood, and found objects. They will strengthen their ability to see sculpture in the every day world and experiment with structural form while considering society at large. The session will include:
- Facilitated discussions about art
- Virtual artist studio visits and gallery visits
- Portfolio development
- Professional photography of artworks
- Website/online presence consulting
- An art supply kit with all materials and tools needed for the class
Registration is open to highly motivated high school students (9 – 12th grade), who can commit to being an active attendee of all classes.
The deadline to apply has been extended to August 30, 2020.
