High school students are invited this February vacation week to create art that re-interprets and incorporates maps. This teen workshop combines exercises in mapping, writing, and visual art to guide participants in creating beautiful altered maps as a personal expression. Techniques used to alter and/or create maps will include gouache, watercolor and acrylic paints, and an array of mixed media collage.
Instructor Alexis Iammarino holds a M.A. in Community Arts from the Maryland Institute of Art in Baltimore and creates experiential workshops that are material and inquiry-based. She has taught, performed, produced, and exhibited works throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, with Dance Exchange in Washington, D.C. and at the Meridian Gallery in San Francisco, CA.
