Creating Your America: A Master Workshop with Maggie Meiners
What message do you want to share about your America and our fragile freedoms? Join artist Maggie Meiners for a month-long journey as we seek to understand American society, and create an artifact to reflect your message in a medium of your choice. On the first day, students will hear from the artist about her process, personal journey, and artistic influences, and examine other artworks in MAM’s collection that reflect contemporary issues and have a group discussion about our collective experience and individual stories of America. Students will then begin the process of creating their own work -- personal creative journaling, defining a message, and determining the best media to express themselves.
Over the month, students will work independently on their artwork and share progress on a private online bulletin board for feedback and support from Meiners and fellow students. During the final class, students will discuss their artwork in a supportive environment.
Students of all levels and abilities welcomed; no prior experience required. Workshop takes place on Zoom.
