Are you a young artist looking to engage with your community? The Portland Art Museum’s Artist in Residence Lexa Walsh will be teaching a workshop called Socially Engaged Art Making that encourages students to explore the relationship between art and community. This is a free 10-week course in which young artists will work in an array of formats, from public art, documentary, alternative education, and others. The work produced will be influenced by youth culture and final projects will be a collaboration with local community partners.
Interested artists should email a CV outlining why they’d like to be in the course; they should include any collaborative experiences they’ve had. Applications must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 1st.
