Summer Workshop Program 2023
This workshop challenges your art making habits through experiments and play with multi-media, process, and output. We will use unconventional materials (found objects, organic matter, land/environment), try varied processes (drawing, sculpture, text, performance, photography, video, collaboration), and discuss the different experiences of creative output (online, in-real-life, gallery, museum, public, permanent/impermanent.) Through experiments with the unfamiliar we will focus on problem-solving, spontaneity, and creative expansion.Zehra-Khan-Materials-List-SP23.pdf
