About This Activity

Working across various media such as painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation, young artists will create a collaborative installation with kinetic elements. Throughout the week, we will explore abstract and representational forms and themes inspired by the natural environment, soundscapes, and our bodies. Paying close attention to the act of creating and associated physical movement, we will incorporate moving parts and pieces in our creations. From mobiles to self-portraits, we will experiment with diverse art materials such as recyclable materials, repurposed objects, paint, paper, fabric, wire, and teamwork! Let’s imagine the possibilities of making art in motion! Instructor: Marlys Mandaville Bio: Dance, sing, gesso, code, cut, glue, twirl, twist – Marlys Mandaville is an artist who uses their work to navigate through their surroundings and community, document time, and provide a platform for community members to tell stories. Playful and curious, their poppy and humorous approach create entry points into serious subject matter. Working across painting, sculpture, sound, and video, they create immersive worlds that act as accessible spaces for conversation about community needs and goals. In 2021, Mandaville graduated with their M.F.A. in Art and the Hung Liu Award from Mills College. In 2015, they received their B.A. (Environmental Studies/Art) from Macalester College, graduating with an Art Department Merit Award, and the Ann Bolger Vision Award, for their work with the fossil fuel divestment campaign. Mandaville was a 2019 Soaring Gardens resident in Laceyville, PA, a 2021 Hinge Arts resident in Fergus Falls, MN, and a participant in Zero1’s 2021 Impact Art Austria, produced in partnership with Ars Electronica.
