Art: Uncanny, Unconscious, & Absurd!   

Create art inspired by the dreams, satire, nonsense, and the reconstruction of the real into an imaginative revision. Through a combination of studio arts activities paired with interactive art history investigations, tap into your creative instinct and develop critical tools for creating unconventional and meaningful artwork. Sequences activities include autonomic drawing and writing exercises, mythical creature collaborative artworks, landscapes of the subconscious, collages/photomontage and mass-media appropriation, and found-object sculptures. Explore the Post WWII Avant-garde movements of Surrealism and Dada. Learn about the work of artists like Meret Oppenheim, Frida Kahlo, Lee Miller, Suzanne Duchamp, Arp, Mina Loy – anti-bourgeois women who unpacked and paved the way for the anarchic. Create original artworks inspired by fun and engaging ways to look at art history. A supply list will be emailed upon registration.
