Calling Talented Teens!
Sculpture/Collage Class – The Art of Do-it-Yourself
at SCRAP with SFAI City Studio!
With teaching artist Laura Boles Faw
Weds., 4 – 5:30pm, plus 2 Saturdays (t.b.a.)
Starting in February
Along with building skills, students will be introduced to various ways of creating their own collages, sculptures, and crafts from materials at SCRAP and other free resources. We will discuss a variety of approaches to creating artwork from found objects and materials and in the process discuss the lifecycle of materials used. We will think critically about the materials we use and teach the vocabulary related to reuse.
This Spring, there are 6 community center City Studio Satellites where the SFAI City Studio classes will be held: Bayview Opera House (filmmaking and video for YouTube), SCRAP (sculpture /collage); the Excelsior Boys & Girls Club (mural painting); the East Bay Asian Youth Center in Central East Oakland (sound, video, and media lab); SOMARTS (ceramic sculpture); and The Lab (Video Game production).
The City Studio Program’s mission is to offer art classes to underserved youth, ages 12-19, in their own neighborhoods and ultimately, to assist them in preparing a portfolio for application to college.
Prospective students will need to complete and return an application via email or mail or bring to their first class, to be considered for the program. Contact JD Beltran at firstname.lastname@example.org or 415.351.3530 for an application or more information.
