PRINTMAKING AND SCULPTURE: WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?
Saturday, November 19
Instructor: Renee Calway
Homes look different, depending on the available resources, climate, and the needs they serve to the people who live in them. This workshop will feature two reductive artmaking techniques that allow students to study the similarities and differences of house structures in our community and around the world. First, we'll practice our printmaking skills as we learn to create a block print, then we'll use tools to carve away at clay as we make a mold for a mini plaster house. By the end of class, kiddos will have multiple prints and a small plaster sculpture to take home!

More Than Shelter
The essentials for human survival are food, water, and shelter. These needs take precedence over all the others. Virginia MOCA continues our investigations of basic human needs with the new exhibition More Than Shelter. Eleven artists received an invitation to participate in this exhibition. We asked each one to consider what the idea of shelter means to them and choose an avenue of investigation. The artists connected with partners who provided unique insight into their area of expertise. Shelter is both a verb and a noun. It can mean a home, a community, or the people and places that makes us feel safe and welcomed. It also means to listen, care, and to support one another, our community, our land, our minds, our society, and our futures.
