Community Arts Program
Innovative workshops provide participants with an opportunity to be creative and explore themes of art and disability. Choose from:
- Outside In: This workshop dives into the raw, self-taught, and intrinsically motivated world of Outside Art. We take a look at famous outsider artists throughout history and the unique processes they applied and create our own outsider art.
- Pop Art With a Purpose: Through an exploration of the movement of Pop Art and its most famous artists, participants look at themes of color, perspective, size and scale, as we create our own individual and collaborative outsider art.
- Use Your Words: Through an exploration of words in art, participants will use self-reflection to create artwork that represents who they are using words and other creative materials to make our own inspired word art.
- Socially Speaking: Learn about the power of art as a medium for social change. This workshop draws from the unique experiences of many of our working artists and exposes students to the history of the disability movement, art and social activism and cross-cultural understanding. Students will then use problem solving and critical thinking to create their own art.
These workshops and residencies can be held at the gallery or off-site. Workshops vary in price depending on number of sessions and participants.
