From freeway billboards to national news headlines, imagery consumes us everyday, whether we aware or not. These visuals contain narratives, context, and specific implications in our time and culture. As artists, we have the ability to distort, challenge, and exaggerate their definitions. Through the widely-used and, at times, controversial process of appropriation, artists copy, borrow, alter or outright steal to their advantage.
In this workshop, teens experiment with a variety of appropriation methods such as ink transfers, collage, and photomontage.
This workshop is FREE to all youth. Please visit wordscometolife.org or call 661-858-4821 to rsvp. Space is limited.
