INTERSECTION FOR THE ARTS presents DREAM IT & BUILD IT: Creating a Set or Installation on a Bare-Bones Budget A two-workshop series with Victor Cartagena & Joshua McDermott $250 (discounted rate for two related classes) This is the perfect workshop if you: have concepts for installations or theatre design you want to create but don't know how to bring to life, don't know where to get the materials you need for your site-specific art constructions, want to know how to support yourself as an artist making sets and installations, want to get feedback on your work from two experienced and highly regarded set/installation artists, or want to explore new media and how to combine them with installations to maximize the impact of your art. If any of these describe you, sign up for this workshop now, bring your ideas, and be ready to build! JUST ANNOUNCED: This workshop will culminate in a participant gallery show at Intersection for the Arts! You will be able to display the fruit of your workshop labor for all your invited guests to see. SPECIAL OFFER: Sign up now with a friend and take 10% off each of your admission fees. Or, if you are a volunteer, intern or employee of a Bay Area non-profit organization, take 10% off the admission fee for this workshop. Full workshop descriptions: Visual Design for Theater with Victor Cartagena Tuesdays and Thursdays • 6–8pm August 7,9,14,16, 22, 23 $180 (for this workshop only) ($170 Members) Learn how to transform physical space with your artistic vision. In this workshop you will use sculptural materials and other media to modify environments, and create a complete sensory experience for your audience. Students will combine new and old technologies, work with readymade, found and specially created objects and media while simultaneously learning how to work within no and low budget scenarios. Moving from Concept to Reality with Joshua McDermott Saturdays • 12-3pm August 11 & 18 $90 (for this workshop only) ($80 Members) Learn how an artistic concept is translated into reality, moving from idea to materials, fabrication, and installation for both gallery and performance spaces. This class covers crafting a realistic budget, sourcing cheap or even free materials, basic fabrication techniques, and practicable lighting theory and application. We will focus on your own individual vision, and how we can bring that vision to fruition. ALL LEVELS AND AGES ARE WELCOME. The Intersection Institute provides year-round opportunities for people to engage in an interactive exploration of the complete process of creating new art from conception to fruition. The program includes classes, workshops, forums and performances that combine unique social and aesthetic content with interdisciplinary artistic elements. Our educational programs are suitable for all ages and are available to educators, students, community groups, artists and non-artists with all levels of skill and experience.
