Thank you to this year’s participating organizations and individuals who volunteered their time toward making the Camp happen, and the biggest thank you to all the students and families who joined us!
How might you describe the taste of salt or the scent of fresh lemons? How do these sensory experiences come into play when making art? This week we are thinking about the process of exploring in art. To kick off this exciting journey, we are heading to the kitchen to explore food! In the first two weeks of Summer Shake Up, we investigated how looking and listening inform an artist's process. Today, we are expanding upon the importance of the senses in artmaking by adding taste, touch, and smell. Artists pull from every corner of experience when making. Actively engaging all of our senses allows us to experience the world more fully, and as artists, we can draw upon these experiences and share them with others. And to sometimes be a little silly while doing just that...! Watch the two following videos, “Dial C for Coffee” and “Disaster Cooking with Molly!” for examples. Share your taste and smell explorations with us at #chinatiSSU or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
