Slow down to step out of the virtual and into the visual. C3 Visiting Artist Janeil Engelstad will lead a workshop exploring how artists tell stories through art. Choose a work of art and tell its story, illustrated on a postcard with painting, drawing, writing, and collage. Stamps will be provided to send the finished postcard to that special someone in the mail. Ages 13-19; all materials provided, and no prior experience necessary.
Collaboratively and independently, Janeil Engelstad has produced exhibitions and multiform projects throughout the world. Her creative practice and community advocacy work often dovetail into work that addresses political, social, and environmental concerns through writing and the visual arts. She is the Founding Director of MAP - Make Art with Purpose, an organization that produces projects at the intersection of art and other disciplines, including science, technology, education, and social justice activism. Engelstad’s projects have been supported and produced with a variety of partner organizations, including 9e2 Seattle, Art Margins/MIT, California Museum of Photography, Central European Foundation, City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, Dallas Museum of Art, International Center for Photography, Kunsthalle Stanica Žilina-Záriečie, Oboro / Montreál, San Francisco Camerawork, US Department of State, and others.
