The Morning Announcements || Atelier S P A C E
11 November @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm SGTSGD180
The Morning Announcements + The Workbook
Here we go. Take the time together in small groups, to explore ideas. Come up with something that you want to focus on for the 8-page zine. Writing, illustration, photography, collage, and other media are some of the areas you can choose from to focus on, to create your contribution to the mix. You’ll have the afternoon to work with your team to create a *draft.*
What’s an ‘atelier?’
Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. An atelier is ‘a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer.’ These are places where you can meet new and different *others* to connection remarkable ways.
ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing, the hosts attended to the inner strengths of each participant. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. We imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused (watch the film Posthumous, for a great comment on this) and more about the experience. And for those seeking training, it wasn’t about, one might guess, the expensive tuition fees that come with ho-hum professors (jaded people who’ve forgotten the meaning of their occupation—here I recommend Art School Confidential). Perhaps it was about the magic, if I let myself be uncool and optimistic, of Art. What it can do. How it connects us, across time, and distance. Let’s *make* something. Let’s play?
