Gatherings with David Wilson
August 2, 2010 - August 6, 2010; 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Youth ages 9–12 (exceptions considered)
MATRIX artist David Wilson wants a few young minds to join him during his summer-long museum residency as he develops his Gallery B installation, Gatherings. Become a collaborator with him, exploring the surrounding wilds of the UC Berkeley campus and Strawberry Canyon while looking for materials to gather and bring back to the museum. Rooting his teaching in the ideas and conversations that occur during these adventures, and in the creative exercises that occur back at the museum, Wilson hopes to learn as much as teach. The class will focus on finding new ways to build with natural materials by adding to the installation-in-progress, experiments in light projection, drawing from life, making books and field recordings, and pursuing wonder.
$200 per week; $180 for BAM/PFA members, UC Berkeley students and staff
