For many centuries, artists have been inspired by transformative events. Using works of art from The Last Days of Pompeii: Decadence, Apocalypse, Resurrection and American Vesuvius: Aftermath of Mount Saint Helens by Frank Gohlke and Emmet Gowin, explore how artists have used disasters as inspiration. In this interdisciplinary workshop, learn how to guide students to make and express meaning from visual sources. Use these ideas as inspiration for personal reflection and response. Although English- Language Arts and Visual Arts concepts will be targeted, the broad topics explored in the workshop could apply to a wide range of grades and disciplines.
Though this workshop can be enjoyed as a stand- alone activity, it can also be combined with the TRC workshops on March 16 and 23 (Recording Disaster: Cartooning) which focus on visual communication. The resulting three part series can be taken for graduate credit through Ashland University for an additional fee.
Please register by January 20th by contacting the CMA Ticket Center at 216-421-7350. The workshop is limited to 25 participants. Registration fees include supplies and parking. Cost: $20 for TRC Advantage members, $25 for non-members.
