Curating a Life: Art as Memoir
Mondays, Oct.17 to Nov. 21, 1:30pm – 4pm
Presented Online by Smithsonian Associates Studio Arts
With hands-on exercises in a variety of artistic media, keep a visual-thinking journal as you learn to see like an artist and create personally meaningful works of art in terms of form, theme, and context. In a culminating project, use text, images, and newly developed visual thinking skills to create a “memoir museum”—a handmade map that traces where you’ve been in your life and where you have yet to explore.
