Saturday Art School

Spring 2024

Who / What: Saturday Art School is an extracurricular visual arts program for children in grades Kindergarten to 12. Local children and teens explore ideas and materials with advanced art education students, under the direction of faculty and graduate assistants, each Saturday for eight weeks.

2024 Big Idea: In/Visible:

Visibility and invisibility exist on opposite ends of a continuum. To be visible means to be seen or perceived, while to be invisible means to to be hidden or passed by. Visibility garners attention, perception and often serves as a  tool for change and activism as a spotlight highlights and draws attention. Invisibility yields privacy and protection, like the secret superpowers of the Invisible Man, or Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak. Both can be powerful or painful depending upon if they are desired and sought or rendered by another. What makes someone or something in/visible? Where and when do we experience in/visibility? What needs to be visible that is currently invisible? What is something invisible to others that is visible to you? How do we render the invisible visible and vice versa? Does a lack of visibility render something null, void, or non-existent? Is everything visible, valuable?
