Gallery + Studio: Sculptural Vessels
For ages 6–12 with accompanying adult(s)
Workshop led by
Raphael Noz holds an MS in education from Wheelock College and an MFA from California College of the Arts. His multidisciplinary art has been exhibited at venues including BAMPFA and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. He currently works as a teaching artist at the de Young Museum in San Francisco.
This two-part workshop integrates an interactive gallery tour with a related art project.
Contemporary artist Gabriel Chaile makes distinctive larger-than-life sculptures that resemble the ceramics of precolonial cultures in what is now northwestern Argentina, where he is from. His work is also inspired by the smokestacks used in the sugar refining process and the history of protests in the city where he was raised. He has even used some of his sculptures as ovens to cook for and feed communities. After an interactive gallery tour of Chaile’s art, join us to make a small sculptural vessel using air-dry clay and other materials. Add legs and other elements to personalize it and make it your own.
