Kids Drop-in: Art is Malleable

Image from Atelier stop motion videos

Inspired by the AGA’s own Shiva featured in Goddesses of Creation: Spiritual Traditions of Hindu India between the 3rd and the 18th centuries, build plasticine figures to take home! Using sculpture tools and techniques, build several small figures, or one titanic sculpture - it’s up to your artistic impulse!

Bios

Mitchell has wanted to be a teacher since he was in second grade. To be a teacher was a chance to thrive in structured chaos: each day was planned out ahead of time, but everything could change in a moment depending on the class. Each moment spending time with students feels unique & novel.

Having the chance to teach art is an even greater opportunity, as it offers the ability to really focus on process-based learning and, more importantly, an environment to cultivate a space for playful failure & co-operative creation. "Personally, I feel that’s what creates the best kinds of learning", Mitchell believes.

After graduating from the U of A’s combined BA Drama/BEd Secondary program, Mitchell is grateful for the chance to explore art-making, media-studies, and peer-to-peer interactions with kids. In his spare time he consumes an absurd amount of film, Netflix, and comic books. You can also find him hosting WenghTalk Radio, an interview-based podcast he recently started.
