Artmaking From Home: Suspended Sculptures

FRI, Aug 21, 2020
1 pm

Online, via Zoom

Experiment with ordinary materials in new and creative ways with these online artmaking events designed for all ages. Each project explores artworks from the Whitney’s collection included in Making Knowing: Craft in Art, 1950–2019, and invites participants to consider the relationship between artmaking and our domestic spaces. All events in this series are live, thirty-minute sessions taught by a Whitney educator.

Taking inspiration from works by Ruth Asawa, this workshop explores a range of approaches to working with suspension and motion to think about line, shape, and form in three dimensions.  

Instructor: Camilo Godoy is an artist and educator in New York City.
