Installation Art – Teens
Instructor: Peter Pereira
FOR AGES 13 – 16
Bring a Shoe! Peter G. Pereira, creator of the Trees of Life Sculpture and Multimedia Installation Series will introduce you to this groundbreaking and exiting course: Installation Art. Get ready for a magical experience as you explore in-and-out-of-the-box approaches to composing installation art! This class will be a fun and exciting way to develop your own skills and dreams while learning the art of teamwork. Are you a writer/poet, into fashion, a musician, painter, sculptor, photographer, movie-maker, dancer, gymnast, carpenter/engineer, chef, or some combination in the making? Then this course is for you! It explores Installation Art in all media inclusively and for everyone! We will incorporate a variety of your own media works and ideas including photographs, paintings, drawings, writing, video, sound and sculptural materials. So, bring something of yours along (and also bring an extra shoe, which will later become part of a larger interactive and multimedia installation piece)! Through the weeks, we will be discussing chosen object(s), planning out in 2d and 3d, discussing ideas about the installation piece and site, including materials, budget, spaces and scale, ecology, carbon footprint, construction, a little project managing, funding, social media and marketing. We will also introduce techniques for documenting the process, which will make the project a film in the making! Bring a shoe and join this journey of a thousand creative miles!
