This week’s Next group had two special guests visit City Art Lab-Anna Ozbek, a multimedia journalist and Joaquin Sapien, an investigative journalist for ProPublica. Students interviewed and documented via photos, notes, and illustrations, an engaging and thought provoking conversation about current and social political events. In response to the interview students and our special guests collaborated in creating a larger scale work of art by drawing and painting in response to the experience and topics discussed.
The Race group had another week of thoughtful and engaging discussions about identity and the question of: Who am I? The group discussed on how to make a clear and concrete statement through symbols, composition, color, and space in their zines. Students continued to work on their zines through mixed media of collage and drawing techniques.
