Heejung Cho’s lovely mentees!!

We did wire drawings on panels and now are making hand casts with cement, plaster and plaster wrap. Sculpture making is fun and messy  😀

Day 2 – Artist Studio Visit with Heejung Cho

In this visit to the sculpture and printmaking studio, we’ve met an artist, Heejung Cho,

Who is an sculptor and that also makes collages out of different kind, sizes, shapes and textures of wood chips. Most of Heejung’s work are replicas of the original brooklyn bridge collage she made from thin pieces of wood, then moved on to working with coloring wood chips to give the artwork more color.

Art Ready @ the Whitney with Lindsey O’Connor

image1 (4)The Art Ready teens were able to speak to the Whitney Biennial coordinator, Lindsey O’Connor, during their field trip to the Whitney Museum a few weeks ago. All the teens gathered around to hear O’Connor speak about her work at the museum along with other shows she has curated, for example a group show this past summer at Smack Mellon called Laugh Back. She informed the group about how the participants within the Whitney Biennial are kept confidential, therefore artists who are in the Biennial don’t know who else is in the exhibit. After meeting O’Connor, the students paired up and wandered through the museum such as the Andy Warhol exhibit. They were asked to pick a work of art and photograph it then meet back in the lobby a few hours later to share the piece they chose and why. Many of the students chose works by Warhol and spoke about the various aesthetic qualities that drew them to the piece. Afterwards they were told who their mentor would be for the following months which sparked bursts of anticipation and excitement.

The trip took place on January 9, 2019
