Gallery + Studio: Exquisite Corpse Collage

For ages 6 to 12 with accompanying adult(s)

 

  • With artist

    Richmond-based mixed-media artist and teacher Erin McCluskey Wheeler holds an MFA from California College of the Arts and recently held the positions of artist in residence at the El Cerrito Recycling Center and education program specialist at the UC Botanical Garden.

Invented by the Surrealists as a drawing and writing game, exquisite corpse is a way to work collaboratively on a piece of art. Find some inspiration in the Strange galleries, then use found images from magazines and catalogs to add fantastically strange elements to your own creatures, landscapes, and abstract designs! 

About Gallery + Studio
On the second Saturday of each month, Gallery + Studio connects art viewing with art making in ways that engage both young people and their grown-ups. Each two-part workshop integrates an interactive gallery tour with a related art project, and lasts about an hour and a half. Sign up on site beginning fifteen minutes before the session you wish to attend. Space is limited to twelve kids per session; please arrive promptly to sign up.
