Free with pre-registration.
All materials are provided for this workshop.
Instructor: Danielle Scicluna
No experience is required for this exciting new teen workshop – students in this one-day workshop will learn about installation artists and traditions from the past to the present, before working together to create an installation in the Education Gallery at the Michener. Installation art is site-specific 3D art that transforms the space. The student-created installation will be on display for the week following. Students will also visit the Museum galleries to view installation art in the Rising Tides: Contemporary Art and the Ecology of Water exhibition.
Informal, informative, and inspiring hands-on art classes with changing themes provide a unique focus for adult learners of all ages and abilities to engage in Museum-based art education and creative exploration. Permanent collections balanced with special exhibitions provide ongoing opportunities for looking at and learning about a variety of art forms. Opportunities for individualized instruction, observation, practice, experimentation, and the development of a personal style are at the core of all of our adult art classes. Instructional projects vary throughout the year; adults who participated in our art classes continue to bring new insights and find new challenges in this series of programs.
