Floating in Space: Creating Positive and Negative Shapes with Simple Materials
 
Presented by Shaw Gallery and WSU Arts Learning Collaborative
Evening for Educators

In connection with the exhibition Yasuaki Onishi: Reverse of Volume, we will explore the concepts of space, shape, form, and weight. In his installation, Onishi uses the simplest materials—plastic sheeting and black hot glue—to create a monumental, mountainous form that appears to float in space. Shaw Gallery Director Lydia Gravis will introduce the exhibition, and K-12 educators will participate in hands-on workshops exploring how visual arts can be used to shape learning in the classroom. 

Relicensure hours are available for licensed educators.

Light snacks will be provided.  Parking on campus is free after 4 pm.

 

Where: Weber State University, Ogden Campus, Shaw Gallery (3964 W. Campus Drive, Ogden, UT, 84408)

When: Thursday, February 28, 2019 from 5:30-8:30 pm (sign in from 5:00-5:30 pm)

Erinne Roundy (K-6)

 

 

Even before I had a family of my own, I knew I wanted to teach art to kids.  I wanted to show kids what options they had available to visually express themselves.  When I graduated from Weber State University with a BS in Visual Communications/Design n 1998, I used what I learned from school, and from my various work and personal experiences throughout the years to help me grow as a creative individual and as an art teacher.  Currently, I am teaching Art Foundations at North Davis Preparatory Academy in Layton, Utah.  For the past 9 years, I have run a successful after-school art program for elementary-aged kids and I’ve also been involved in my school’s annual art auction fundraising event.  I’m always on the look-out for opportunities to expose kids and myself to creative endeavors.
