Presented in collaboration with Congregation Beth Elohim Early Childhood Center
Magali Duzant’s workshop focused on sun prints, or cyanotypes, which feature heavily in her existing practice. Each child had their own pretreated photo sheet, along with a large pretreated canvas on which all of the students collaborated. Simple objects such as yogurt lids, sticks, cut-out shapes, and even the children’s hands were used to create images on the prints.
ECC x Artists Alliance is a series of collaborative projects initiated by Artists Alliance Inc with Congregation Beth Elohim Early Childhood Center. Designed and led by guest artists, in collaboration with ECC educator Tom Pnini, students work in the classroom on pre-designed projects that both parallel the school’s current art curriculum and extend from the individual artist’s existing practice. Collectively, the projects urge students to experience art-making through unexpected visual relationships, using professional artists’ practices as a means to create engaging and interactive learning activities.| | | Next → |
