Art in the Time of Grief
Wednesday, 3/6/2024, 6:00-9:00pm
1 online session
Instructor: Roberta Fudim
In this workshop, students will view and discuss works of art that reflect the power of grief as both a personal and political act. Grief takes many forms: we can grieve the loss of a loved one, or of independence, a loss of status or security, or the loss of nature and species. Together, we will explore art as a means to communicate and work with our own grief using collage and assemblage. We will work with existing materials that can operate as a symbol, or talisman and be transformed through a process of adding, erasing, marking, scoring, subtracting, superimposition. No specific materials are needed for this class; use what you have on hand or what you find yourself drawn to. ONLINE
