Learning Labs are series of intensive workshops for youth, K-12, lead by PlatteForum resident artists.
Susan Meyer + PS 1 Charter School
November 29 - February 11 Susan Meyer collaborated with High School level
students from PS I Charter School to create an in-process mixed-media
installation. The work referenced landscape as a metaphor for the
psychic and social peculiarities of our time period. She worked with
youth to create real and imagined 3D landscapes utilizing photography,
mixed media and construction. They incorporated digital cameras in the
beginning of the process to explore environments and at the end of
project to document finished pieces. Each student was given their own
space to work with in the gallery and encouraged to create a 3-D
installation piece by building off of the walls and floor. Each one
exhibited a innovative artwork and artist statement to the public and
were very well received!
