Teen Video Art Workshop

This is your last chance to register for this FREE video workshop taught by visiting artists Alison Brady and Sarah Knobel this Saturday at the Henry Art Gallery.  Sponsored by the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, this is a free workshop for teens 14-18.

Do you know a happy rock when you see one? Ever wonder how the door to a building feels about being grabbed and thrown open hundreds of times every day? Create personalities and stories for these or other common objects with artists Alison Brady and Sarah Knobel during a workshop on making video art using simple video recorders—a whole lot like the video cameras in a cell phone. No special training or tools required!

Meet the artists in the education studio at the Henry Art Gallery, where they will show you clips from their video work before they walk you through using the equipment (phone-sized Flip cameras) and starting a new project. You will then work with other participants to complete a series of short, spontaneous videos on the story of things—things in your pocket or bag, things in and around the museum, or things on the sidewalks of the streets nearby. (Alison and Sarah will have plenty of ideas to help get you started.)

Over lunch, Sarah and Alison will show all of the videos. They’ll provide feedback and you will have a chance talk about your work and ideas with the other participants. Edited DVDs of videos made during the workshop will be mailed to all participants.

Lunch is provided and the workshop includes free entry to Alison and Sarah’s 2:00 artist talk in the Henry Art Gallery auditorium.

Maximum class size is 25. To reserve your spot, complete the online registration form by Wednesday, January 5. Questions? Call or email Abigail Guay at (206) 755-1700 or abigail.guay@gmail.com(Please turn on JavaScript to view this email address.).

Workshop sponsored by the City of Seattle Office of Arts and Cultural Affairs, with additional support from the Henry Art Gallery and Kirkland Arts Center.
