Class: Book of Textures
Instructor: Ivonne Yáñez
When: Thursday, October 12th, 2023, 6-8pm
Experiment with a variety of materials and compose them into a book with interdisciplinary artist, Ivonne Yáñez. Participants will navigate through different surfaces ranging from textiles to drawing and painting, collecting all of them in a pre-made book. During this workshop, the exploration of concepts will be based on surface, skin, camouflage, and topography.
Workshops are free for members, and we never want cost to be a barrier. If this applies to you, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Class: Thinking In Space
Instructor: Alison Hiltner and Prerna
When: Saturday, August 26, 2023, Noon-2pm
Ever feel overwhelmed about tackling how to have your work occupy a space successfully? Alison Hiltner and Prerna will share their problem-solving processes with you, AND they’ll invite everyone that signs up for the workshop to share a specific installation challenge you have with your practice, and they’ll help you solve it during the workshop. Everyone will have an opportunity to share, and each problem will be a part of the learning process of this workshop. Bring images, videos, or drawings to help Alison and Prerna understand the problem they are trying to solve--and hopefully solve it in the most entertaining way possible!
Sophia Abrams will be in conversation with Kehayr Brown-Ransaw on alternative curatorial methods. While traditional modes of curation are understood to be tied to museum and gallery spaces, this workshop focuses on the importance of reimagining and curating exhibitions in nontraditional spaces. Examples of topics explored in the workshop include: how to start curating, how to find grants, how to select artists, and how to find an exhibition space. This workshop is intended for beginning curators or people who are interested in curatorial work.
