WADE: Young Women's Art & Design Exhibition

Nov. 14, 2015

ABOUT

WADE is designed to provide young high school women with opportunities to exhibit artwork, develop advanced studio skills, cultivate aesthetic appreciation, and earn scholarships for college study. WADE is open to high school women in Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina and South Carolina. Goal: Through this dynamic festival of exhibitions, presentations and studio workshops Brenau University seeks to celebrate the young woman’s role in defining the symbiotic relationship of art and society. On behalf of the steering committee, we are pleased to announce the young Women’s Art & Design Exhibition, WADE, at Brenau University. In the spirit of the previous All-State Festival of Art & Design, Brenau has revitalized the festival and modeled it into a women’s only event. The steering committee is planning a spectacular list of activities, workshops and lectures for young women including an exhibition of their works.

WORKSHOPS

Rendering with Markers: Students attending this workshop will be instructed in the use of markers and colored pencils. There will be emphasis on shading, shadowing and reflections placement.

Intro to Designing Space: Learn how professions approach problems of space design through exploring the capabilities and potential of Revit, a professional space design software.

Figure Drawing: Learn about the arts of drawing the human form and of portraiture.

Print Power: Simple printing techniques such as monoprint and linocut are combined to produce one-of-a-kind prints.

Mark-Making w/Paint on Paper: Try out techniques for large-scale paper painting. Mark-making approaches include spraying, stenciling, stamping, and other non-brush applications.

Teacher’s Workshop: The WADE workshop for art instructors will be an introduction to 3-D printers, 3-D software and the integration of this technology into the classroom. Professor Claudia Wilburn will discuss Makerbot 3D printers and how they work, as well as how Brenau University is integrating 3-D printing technology into the Art and Design curriculum. Attendees will have instruction in two 3-D modeling software programs that are available online at no charge. Each teacher will create at least one design to be 3-D printed. Classroom space is limited.
