Studio Sessions: Wire Portraits

Education Center, Red Workshop
10 a.m.–12:30 p.m. 

What stories can wire tell? How can portraits change our perceptions of people? In this studio workshop, we will explore how wire and other found materials can be used to create portraits, drawing inspiration from art in the High’s collection like artist Lonnie Holley’s Finally Getting Wings for the Forty-First Floor. With instructor Daniel Mantilla, we will learn how to manipulate different types of wire to create complex and intricate works of art. Then, we will use these materials to make portraits ourselves. Through this abstract art form, we will explore different ways to convey the personalities, emotions, and values of our chosen figures, all with professional guidance from the instructor.
