Wildcat Art Exhibition!
Join us between 11am – 1pm at the Student Union Gallery to see results of 8 weeks of art-making by Tucson’s art students, age 5-18.
Friends, Family, and the public are welcome!
De-installation of children’s art begins promptly at 1pm.
Previously our curriculum has included experiences in movement and contemporary dance; narrative and storytelling; collographic printing; cyanotype photography; post-modern architecture; clay; stop-frame animation, and other art-making processes. Themes and issues we will explore our theme, Identity: Your Interconnected Worlds and may include personal geographies; diversity; our desert environment and sustainability; community; collaboration; and identity! We’ve visited both the Arizona State Museum and the Center for Creative Photography, too (and were visited by local artists)!
Wildcat Art classes are structured to encourage students to explore ideas and issues through contemporary (digital media, installation, performance) and traditional art media & practices (drawing, painting, photography, sculpture, design). Experiences are designed specifically for students at each age/grade level from kindergarten through adolescence (K-12). Classes are taught by advanced and graduate art & visual culture education students, in collaboration with art & visual culture education faculty.
Classes run every Saturday from 9:00am – 12:00 noon and are held in the School of Art Building on the University of Arizona campus. Our 2013 schedule is as follows: Classes will meet each Saturday, from February 23rd through April 27th, with the exception of March 9th (our Spring Break). Our exhibition will open on April 27th, from 11:00 – 1:00.
Our annual exhibition is held at the University of Arizona Union Gallery for students and their families.
