Objects / Belongings: Writing and Drawing About Our Stuff (CLASS FULL– WAIT LIST ONLY)


Dec 10,2016, 12:00 PM - 2:00 PM @ 826 Valencia (Mission Center)
Taught by Kate Bingaman-Burt, Zachary Schomburg, and Christine Herrin Open to 12 students, ages 11–13 A two-day workshop December 10 & 11 Saturday & Sunday, 12–2 p.m. So, there’s that Winnie the Pooh nightlight that you still keep plugged into your bedroom wall for some reason, and the red cape that you wore for Halloween years ago but still secretly put on when no one else is at home. There’s also the bent-up retainer you have to wear when you sleep, and maybe a busted Rubik’s cube you broke trying to cheat. Instead of keeping our weird stuff under the bed, let’s look at it together to see what stories these objects can reveal about us. In this two-day workshop lead by illustrator Kate Bingaman-Burt, writer Zachary Schomburg, and graphic designer Christine Herrin, you will be asked to bring in some of your own personal stuff so that we can look at it in new and different ways. The session will kick off with a series of writing and drawing prompts designed to help us get at the heart of the stories our stuff tells about us, and we’ll use these to transform our workspace into a writing and drawing factory. To inspire us, we’ll also look at examples from different artists and writers who make work about their own stuff. By the end of the workshop, we’ll compile our drawings and writings into our own zines and share our work with the group.
