Introduction to Performance Art for Kids

Instructors: Catlin Lancaster and Lucia Earle, Ages 6-12, $135

This workshop offers a chance for kids to be active outside as we explore the basic principles of performance art:  what happens when art intersects with life?  We will tell stories, draw, make masks, dance, and construct hideouts with the aim of creating symbolic artifacts to use in our own playful, ceremonial adventures!  Students will work together as a tribe as they incorporate natural objects from Ox-Bow’s campus, recycled material, body paint, and a variety of art supplies, modeling our creative pieces after those of indigenous peoples from around the world.
