Statues and Monuments
Ceramics ( but adaptable to any media)
Students will discuss and reflect on controversial statues. They will then create art based on their research and analysis of artists who have explored statues, monuments, and public artworks as a reflection of cultural identity.
What should we do with controversial statues? Should we pull them down or keep them up? To help you answer these questions, this 3 week workshop will dip in to history, politics and art & design.
