Call for Student Artists:
The Bunnell Street Art Center seeks 4-8 students ages 12-18 to work alongside their Feb/March 2018 Artist-in-Residence, Jaimie Warren. Ms. Warren will work with a small group of students interested in the arts to work consistently on an ambitious, collaborative project throughout a four-week period. Students will work after school and during spring break to learn a variety of art-making methods, brainstorm ideas, and create a new series of costumes, puppets and sets, forming an original work of art with the artist. Artistic methods employed will include painting, paper mache, performance and puppet construction. We will brainstorm ideas to incorporate symbols of our lives in Alaska, art historical figures, and pop culture icons, to create a unique work of art that is a true collaboration.
