Young Artists and Their Mentors

November 12th, 2009

Announcement / Call to Artists
 

Young Artists and Their Mentors      
A Three Show Series by Hera Gallery at Bagelz of Wakefield
Winter/Spring 2010
 

            The traditional way to become an artist was to find an apprenticeship with a master, work at menial tasks in his or her studio for years, gradually get to try your hand at a paint brush, and if you had talent emerge from your teacher’s shadow and establish yourself as an artist in your own right. In education in general, and arts education in particular, there is a resurgence of the notion that the classroom is not the only or the best place to learn some skills. More and more there is an emphasis on personal connections between students and mentors as a way for the young person to grow and develop. This trend is described as “real world learning”, “community based training,” and/or “learning through internships.” In Rhode Island there are several agencies that provide mentoring and internships for young artists to work with professional artists. These include New Urban Arts, AS220, The Met Schools in Providence and The East Bay Met School in Newport, Riverzedge, and Providence City Arts. Additionally, many young artists, whose training is mainly based in schools rather than the community, form student-mentor relationships that deeply influence their development as artists.  In looking at young artists and their mentors, the emphasis is typically on what the young person gains from the relationship. However, anyone who has ever served as a mentor will tell you it is a two way street that can enhance the teacher as well as the student.

            From January through June of 2010, Hera gallery will be presenting a series of three exhibitions in the gallery at Bagelz of Wakefield showing the work of young artists and their mentors and exploring the relationship between mentor and learner.

We would like you to be part of this project!
And/or help us find other participants.
 

We are looking for works by young artists and their mentors that reflect on their relationship and/or their mutual influence on each other. Additionally, they will be asked to participate in documentation of their working relationship through photography and interviews. The resulting shows will present the artwork and the documentation. It is anticipated that each exhibit in the series will focus on six mentor/learner pairs, twelve works of art. Each will be on display for two months: January/February, March/April and May/June.

Other plans for the series Young Artists and Their Mentors:

·       The opening reception of each exhibition in the series will feature performances by young artists and their mentors in the areas of music, dance, spoken word, and/or video,

·       Additional funding will be sought to present panel discussions on the mentor/learner relationship,

·       The exhibitions will be offered to participating organizations and other venues for display in other parts of the state,

·       The project will be documented on the Hera Gallery website. Documentation will be provided to participating organizations that may also wish to post it.

Workshop in Relief Stone Carving

November 12th, 2009

“The Lore and Lure of Carving Stone”, a workshop in Relief Stone Carving that includes some extras for RI teachers, will be offered in cooperation with the Blackstone River Theatre’s Heritage Arts Studio on November 21-22. Beacon Charter High School for the Arts in Woonsocket RI has generously offered to host the event in one of their art classrooms.  

Throughout most of the world, art works in stone embody importance and permanence, honor deities and the dead, and mark transitions of every sort. To carve stone is to understand timelessness and tenacity.  The methods used today are nearly identical to those employed throughout history, and while practice and persistence are required, the basics are relatively easily explained and learned.  

During the classes, we’ll take manageable pieces of limestone and carve them in relief, using direct methods and straightforward tools. Bring your own sketches or ideas, or access the large range of materials readily available. Beginner or advanced students can be accommodated.

For this class, students should bring: personal goggles or other eye protection, sandbag made from sand and a pillowcase; all other materials and tools are included in materials fee. This class is for age 14 and up; a great chance to take a class with the teen artist in your family! The course fee is $125 plus a separate $25 materials fee which is payable directly to instructor.

While the workshop is open to everyone, this workshop has been added to the RI Dept of Education web site at  www.ricert.ride.ri.gov as a Professional Development Opportunity which counts towards the I-Plan, of interest to teachers around the state, especially visual art and history teachers and teachers interested in differentiated learning. Details are available for educators at a dedicated web site for the workshop at: http://campus.digication.com/traviscurric/

 

Laura Travis (BS Art Ed, MFA Sculpture) has been teaching art for twenty years, currently at Hope Arts in Providence and in RISD’s Young Artist program,  Every summer she ‘hits the road’ to teach stonecarving to adults and teenagers from here to Canada and back. Her own work in stone explores ideas from the ancient to the contemporary. More of her work may be seen at campus.digication.com/lauratravis. 

To register, contact the Blackstone River Theatre at 401-725-9272.

For information on Beacon, as well as directions, see their web site:  http://www.beaconart.org
