Summer Arts at the Museum is pleased to announce our 2004 Summer
Collage Arts Academy for rising 4th – 12th grade students.
In collaboration with professional artists and performers, young
artists will explore the connections between art and everyday life
through a collage of multidisciplinary projects in visual arts,
performing arts and expressive arts.
to enhance self-expression, artistic growth and creative exploration,
each two-week session will provide opportunities for youth to develop
individual and collective projects through a variety of artistic
mediums not always associated with one another. In Summer Collage,
paintings will become musical compositions, sculptures will come
alive through storytelling, poems will be danced, collage will become
writing! Program highlights include:
VISUAL ARTS – Studio art projects in sculpture, painting,
photographic arts & mixed media
EXPRESSIVE ARTS – Community art-making experiences integrating
poetry, music, movement, improvisation and play
MUSEUM TOURS – Interactive tours & activities exploring
featured exhibits & art in the permanent collection
STUDIO EXPLORATIONS – Special workshops with artists, dancers
& musicians introducing eclectic ways of inspiring, and interacting
with, the visual arts
Inspired by the American Collage Exhibit (January 23 – August
22, 2004), a very special assemblage of professional artists, and
experienced educators, will co-create the curriculum for Summer
Collage, making this a truly multidisciplinary academy of arts.
At the end of the summer, we will celebrate with an exhibition of
student art and performance. Cd recordings of the students’
musical and poetic improvisations will also be made available through
the generosity of the Music Resource Center.
