MAKING IT: STUDIO PRACTICES AND HOW TO GET STUFF MADE
This four-day intensive workshop will focus on different practices and strategies used to make art. Presentations, discussions, and field trips will introduce students to people, processes and places to bring an idea and inspiration to fruition. The students will visit: art fabricators and material distributors and 3 group studios: Ironton, RedLine, and Tank Studios. Students will come away with a broad and personal introduction to the infinite possibilities of working in close proximity to other like-minded creatives and
many processes. Each student will give a brief overview of their work and present one specific project for class brainstorming.
