Making Space Workshops
I’m so excited to be holding a series of SciArt workshops this year supported by NASA’s Solar System Exploration Research Virtual Institute (SSERVI). My first event is in Tucson, AZ this April, with plans in motion for Los Angeles and Denver later this year. Check out the workshop description and website below. I’ve also added a Workshops tab on the main page here where you can watch for new info as this project evolves.
Making Space is an in-person multi-day workshop about space, sciart, and making where we use art as a tool to explore scientific concepts and humanity’s relationship to space. Participants will learn about how we use spacecraft observations to explore other worlds, how to access public data from space missions, do collaborative discussion and art activities, and practice creating sciart through hands-on art labs using a variety of mediums. By the end of the workshop, participants will create their own piece of science-driven art which they will be invited to showcase at an art exhibition later in the year. The workshop is targeted towards a mixed, adult audience with backgrounds (professional or otherwise) in art and/or science. Artists, makers, scientists, science communicators, and educators are encouraged to apply!
Applications open for April 15-17, 2022 at the Catalyst Arts & Maker Space in Tucson, AZ. Apply for Tucson or sign up to be notified about future workshop dates.
