Teen & Junior Workshops
Teen Workshop: Action! Performance Art and “The Visitors”
Inspired by The Visitors, featuring the work of Ragnar Kjartansson, this workshop introduces teens to the premise of performance-based and time-based art. Participants explore themes of sound, repetition, and movement. Then the group collaborates to capture their own performance on video, to be played at the end of the workshop.
Teens spend time in the galleries exploring and discussing works of art and the different choices artists make. Following the discussion, participants enjoy time in the studio experimenting with the techniques and processes they talked about. Special attention is paid to collaborative and digital art-making methods. Open to ages 13–18. Bring a smartphone or digital camera to capture the performances at this workshop.
Summer 2019 teen workshops take place on the last Friday of June and July.
