Artists have the opportunity on
Saturday, February 1st, from 12:30 to 5:30pm to participate in Urban
Wildlife Workshop “Making Science Visual”.
workshop is for visual artists interested in creating new work relevant to
their community and the creatures living there. The methodology for this
workshop was created by Creature Conserve artists, writers, and scientists with
a specific objective: to foster more interaction between the visual arts and
the living creatures that inhabit the world. We hope to inspire work that is
both informed by science and emotionally charged.
Artists in this workshop will find inspiration for new work from among the myriad scientific facts about the lives of wild animals in urban areas. Through a series of exercises, artists will practice making science – biology, urban ecology, zoology -visual. Skills practiced include active listening, note taking, idea generation, and thumbnail sketching.
