Making Art: An Exercise in Exploration with Marie Pavlicek-Wehrli (Thursdays, May 6-June 24, 2021)
Thursday, June 17 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 1:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until Thursday, June 24, 2021
In this class we’ll start with a close look at a work of art and/or a poem. We’ll then use this piece as a loose take-off point for students to independently create their own new work (image or poem, or a combination of the two) in response to the prompt. Exploration and experimentation with ordinary materials found at home (leaves, cast-off fabrics, junk mail, recycling materials, etc.) will be encouraged, as well as the use of standard art materials (pencil, ink, paper, scissors, etc.). At least half of each class will be dedicated to students sharing their work and class discussion. Marie Pavlicek-Wehrli is an artist and poet.
