SPSCC art students, led by Olympia based artist China Faith Star, will collaborate with Sean Barnes’ Beginning Drawing students to explore form, content and the environment working with discarded materials and the drawing process. Students will experience all aspects of a collaborative project, including planning, production, installation, and presentation that culminates in an exhibition of the work in The Gallery.
“A project like this, washing and using trash to make art, thinking about how to solve a problem, drawing upon it, and collaborating with others for a greater good, juxtaposes with what is currently happening in our society around the Corvid-19 pandemic, washing hands and surroundings, hoarding products, being isolated and distant, being told what to do. Being home consuming stuff or getting deliveries makes us think even more about what surrounds us, is it useful and how we can use our imagination to turn it into something positive together.” – China Faith Star
