(registration still OPEN)- JENNY HAGER-VICKERY will be at JSP from July 23-26 conducting FREE workshops for children ages 12-17. They will be creating a large scale ox (inspired by the Chinese zodiac) which will remain on exhibition at JSP when the workshop is complete. The youth will assist Jenny to create a “skin” or surface of the animal over the course of a week using burlap, plaster resin, and pine straw. This will be a moderately advanced workshop for emerging artists in middle and high school, although no prior experience with these materials is necessary. This will be a great opportunity for young artists to work alongside a professional sculptor to create and install a large scale sculpture. The workshop will be 3 hours in length for a duration of 5 days. Specific times TBA. Children should pack a lunch, snacks & water will be provided.

This workshop’s honest intention is to slow things down and strip away what is false in an individual so that their Truth may be revealed. We will explore many stages of this “stripping away” which will create clarity to manifest the final piece which will be a sculptural or two-dimensional self-portrait constructed from natural materials found on the Park grounds. These Truth Portraits will become part of the Park exhibition. This workshop will be facilitated by artist and teacher, Mollie Rabiner, assisted by Melanie VanHouten and Erika Strecker.

Everyone is invited to participate in the “Birdhouse” building workshops and create their own birdhouses that will become part of the finished sculpture. Your birdhouse will be of your own design and can be as realistic, functional, or artistic as you desire. Not a builder?? Well, you are still invited to stop by and see what’s happening out here any day during the residency. No previous skills are needed and all ages are welcome but the construction is geared more toward older children and adults. There is no cost to participate and materials will be provided, although donations are graciously accepted. Don’t miss this awesome opportunity to create your own work of art and exhibit it at JSP!!!
