Seeing through Art - NEW
XPAS-500

Engage in seeing through the Artist’s eyes and expressing yourself in visual arts in this two-day immersive workshop series. Expand your aesthetic awareness, imagination, and creative expression through visits to the Brooklyn Museum and Botanical Garden, creative exercises, as well as the completion and presentation of hands-on visual projects, using primarily drawing, photography and cartooning.

The first workshop will start at the Brooklyn Museum in the morning, followed by hands-on application to projects in the afternoon. Students will be invited to practice the art of seeing using the tools learned, including by creating their own hands-on visual projects during the month prior to the second workshop.

The second workshop will start with student presentations of their hands-on projects, followed by group critiques in the morning. In the afternoon the group will visit the Brooklyn Botanical Garden to further practice the art of seeing through hands-on creative exercises. The day will culminate in a celebration of everyone’s creativity. All levels welcome. No prior Experience necessary.

NOTE: It is recommended to register early, i.e., at least three weeks before the first workshop: early registration will allow students to request a Pratt Student ID card, which will provide free access to the Brooklyn Museum and Brooklyn Botanical Garden. After that, late registrants without a Pratt Student ID card will have to pay for their own admission to the above venues.
