Workshop with Trinity Presbyterian School at the 121 PopUp Gallery

Uncategorized

The Trinity Presbyterian School, sponsor of the 121 PopUp Gallery in Montgomery, Alabama, asked me to lead a workshop for their high school students in AP and Advanced Art. We started off the day with a quick lecture and discussion about my experience in ‘art school at cow college’ at Auburn University. Next, I spoke with the students about the Approximate Knowledge installation and decisions. We ended the day by casting plaster in bags following the method I developed while creating Ferrous Liquid (2017). The students, who are about to apply to universities, enjoyed hearing about life as an art student and making the plaster pillows. Things got really interesting when the students began to explore how to alter the plaster forms. Their final works are displayed on low pedestals in Approximate Knowledge.
