Kids: Contemporary Artist Series: 2.2
March 8, 2014 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am| $25
Taught by professional artists John Viggiano and Marta Kepka.
The class is designed to allow students to learn about contemporary artists while honing their own artistic skills in a creative and enthusiastic setting.
The goal of the class is to raise the students awareness of contemporary art; particularly art which is in dialogue with social and cultural dynamics. In order to facilitate a fun learning and working environment we propose the class discuss a specific artist. The students will learn about this artist, become familiar with their work and the history that informs them. This will be followed by a project which will entail the students executing their own work of art in a similar manner as the artist discussed.
The class will run for 2 consecutive Saturdays from 9-11am.
The cost of the class is 25$ per student for each session. Student must register for both consecutive sessions.
** Class must meet minimum 8 students to run – maximum 12 students
The following are examples of artists we may choose to discuss for each 2 week session :
Sarah Sze, Vik Muniz, Kehinde Wiley, Elizabeth Murray, Julie Mehretu, Mark Dion, assume vivid astro focus, Glenn Ligon, Gabriel Orozco, Jenny Holzer, William Kentridge, Richard Tuttle, Jessica Stockholder, Ann Hamilton,
