Young Artists: Art & People (ages 8 – 10)

Monday, July 3, 2017 to Friday, July 7, 2017

9 AM – 4 PM

Students spend a week investigating how they can use drawing, collage, painting, and sculpture to represent the human form. In this Young Artists class, each lesson starts with a close investigation of figurative artworks in the Museum’s permanent collection, where students interpret their own meanings of the work. Students will create artworks in the studio that represent people they know from their lives as well as famous and historic figures from our past. Cost: $250. Register here.

Teacher: Adam Farcus is the William R. Hollingsworth Fellow in Engagement and Learning at the Mississippi Museum of Art. Farcus’ classes and their personal artwork asks people to become engaged and rigorous investigators of the world around them.

Their work has been exhibited at numerous venues, including Vox Populi, Philadelphia; the American University Museum, and A+D Gallery, Columbia College, Chicago.
