July 5-7, 9am-4pm
Instructor: Rene Allene Westbrook
Ages: 13+ years (high school students)
Tuition: $120, includes materials
Installation art is large-scale (as in a full room or gallery) art that creates an environment, and can include both 2D and 3D components. In this fun and fast-paced workshop, students will conceptualize, design, and co-create a large-scale, collaborative, temporary installation piece and hang it for display in a public space. The installation will be hung in the Lounge area windows of the Hood River Elks Lodge, who has generously sponsored scholarships for Summer Arts Camps through their Antlers for the Arts grant. Using paper, cardboard, decals, and several other sturdy materials, together we’ll create a fantastic landscape that compliments the space. As artists, we will also learn to conceptualize, negotiate, and contract with an entity commissioning our work.
Space is limited to 10 students (minimum 6); register early!
Please note that snacks will NOT be provided by Columbia Arts or the Instructor for this series. Parents are asked to send students with food and drink for this all-day class, and ample breaks will be provided.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
