IN PERSON: School Workshop: Shimmer and Shape your Subject

Residency Workshop English

cj will guide students through the process of producing unique low-relief artworks. Students will create mobiles, sculptures, garden pieces, card frames, wands or other objects tailored to suit your theme, cultural context, or particular skill levels. Learning begins on paper with math-thinking to establish shapes and patterns. Next, students transfer their ideas to the art materials, cut and emboss to create their own 2 or 3-dimensional artworks. Tactile, imaginative and fun; the scraps are worth saving for other small projects! *For online programs, packages with beautiful, reflective materials are prepared for each class and delivered to the school.

IN PERSON: School Workshop: Shimmering Public Art: Residency Collaborative Project

Residency Workshop English

This introductory residency explores the essential steps to develop a public art project considering the civic, social, architectural, and cultural contexts. From planning to engineering, including industry and safety standards, budget development, public communication, and competition, students will expand their understanding of site-specific 2D or 3D public art installations. Individual creations will contribute to a cohesive final work and a collective sense of pride! * As every project is different, a meeting with the artist is required to determine the project's parameters, material cost, and the number of participants. **For online programs, packages with beautiful, reflective, feather-weight materials and hanging elements are prepared and delivered to the school.
