I.S.P. (as we like call it) is all about connecting youth to contemporary art and art making.
Under the guidance and support of professional contemporary artists, students create their own art and begin to find their artistic voice. Spending Saturday afternoons with others of like mind and the same interests, students explore new techniques and processes and build their portfolios. Seeing awesome artwork and exhibitions first hand – like Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, Michael Snow and Evan Penny- is a part of each class. And if you don’t know who these artists are, we can’t wait to show you!
For almost 50 years, this class has offered youth with a passionate interest in art and art making the opportunity to explore individual artistic pursuits and ideas while developing technical skills. This course focuses on individual and group exploration of the creative process, skill building and portfolio development. The course is designed for young artists with a passion to create and/or a desire to pursue further studies in the visual arts. Students work with a team of artist-educators in a dynamic open-studio format, experimenting with a range of materials, contemporary processes and ideas. A playful, creative process of exploration in the studio is established through a series of artistic challenges, allowing students to see how they might make but more importantly find meaning in their world.
This course is an ideal opportunity for middle school students who wish to explore art more seriously as they move into senior school, and for senior school students wishing to pursue art studies in college or university. It will also benefit students wishing to develop compelling portfolios needed for further art studies.
Add to this the richness of the AGO collection and changing exhibitions at your fingertips!
