About this program
Learn principles of design, illustration and visual storytelling through the creation of mixed-media collages. Work with paper, crayons and unexpected everyday objects to “construct” yourself from a unique visual perspective. Through a playful process together we will unleash and expand our creativity and prove that a new way of seeing is what really makes good art! Depending on participants age these works can vary greatly in their intricacy.
History and culture of Central Asia; explore nomadic cultures’ artistic traditions and folklore symbolism; learn about symmetry, geometry and explore the properties of shapes, repeated patterns and tessellations; express and communicate ideas through graphic illustration; exercise problem solving and design thinking; cross-curricular links to STEM.
