These final presentations led by architecture critic give the 10 participants of the Art Omi: Architecture Residency an opportunity to pin-up and show their projects at the conclusion of the two-week residency.

The public is welcome to see the early stages of the thinking and design process of making architecture in a classic jury-style review.

The reviews are arranged into two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon with a lunch break in between (where the public can grab a bite at the Cafe!).

Following all the juried presentations, everyone is invited to enjoy a reception with conversation, snacks and refreshments, and get to know the 2018 Architecture Residents.

Building Character and Sculpting Stories

Every Wednesday

The Studio Barns

How can we take control of the stories that we tell ourselves and others? This class will focus on creating character and storytelling through figurative sculpture. There will be an emphasis on developing a personal artistic style through character design and the utilization of motifs and symbols. Inspired by artists of the past and present, students will use a variety of tools, materials, and techniques as they consider figurative poses, the power of gesture, and understand how to develop their own visual language. Representational or abstract, there are no boundaries as to what you can create in this multimedia workshop! Students will be assigned to their very own studio space in our residency Barn. No prior experience necessary.
