Our perceptions of objects—how we see them and what we project onto them—are instrumental in how we relate to the world
Objects in a visual work of art act no differently. The viewer always brings their own experiences to bear on the work in front of them.
This workshop is designed to help students understand how objects are "read" in a visual work of art. A series of writing exercises - connecting the student to the creative process by using language - starts the workshop by having them brainstorm a series of metaphors that describe themselves. By using language to start the student can easily pick up on the concepts presented in the workshop and share their views and ideas with each other. With a common ground established the students will then create a series of images based on these ideas and the objects that have been presented.
This workshop is ideal for smaller groups, usually six to eight in size, but can be extended to fit a group of up to a dozen. It can be tailored to fit a classroom setting or a weekend retreat. The workshop is also structured in such a way that it can be presented over the course of several weeks with a class that meets an hour at a time or can be done as an all day workshop.
