The Global Studies Academy is hosting a Recycled Art Workshop with Young Audiences of Houston. Sponsored in part by the Global Studies Academy Booster Club, students have the unique opportunity to participate in a Recycled Art Workshop in the creation of sustainable art to be on display at the 3rd annual Global Issues Summit. The workshop will be led by Charles Washington of Young Audiences. Mr. Washington is a visionary environmental artist whose wide range of techniques and materials defy a single definition. His work on canvas is bold and fluid, with subjects including African pastoral, American jazz, and free-form designs. A master of mixed media, Mr. Washington also creates spectacular functional and wearable art. In this class, students will learn to create art using found objects in their classroom and community. They will learn about different mediums to work with such as drawing, painting, and sculpture. Students will gain an appreciation for art around them, and be able to think critically and create art from everyday objects.
This artwork will be on display at the Global Issues Summit. This year the Summit is focusing on Hidden Revolutions with 5 topics of focus: Education, Environment, Human Rights, Health/Medicine, & Global Economy. Our workshop will have students working on 5 doors – each door representing a topic. 3-D collages on one side will open to a reverse side that allows for audience/spectator interaction.
This is a 2 hour workshop to be held after school on Wednesday, April 1 in the courtyard near the commons. Spots are limited and participation is free of charge. Sign up at the link below:
