Workshop: Cardboard Constructions Inspired by Piacenza

January 19 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

Teaching artist Chrissy Gray-Rodriguez will lead you in a hands-on workshop as you create your own cathedral (or other structure of your choosing) inspired by the art of Aldo Piacenza!

After a group viewing and discussion of Piacenza’s works in Intuit’s current exhibition, Chicago Calling: Art Against the Flow, you will be guided through step-by-step instructions as you build your structure using cardboard and assorted upcycled materials. After your building is constructed, you will be encouraged to explore your personal style, using Piacenza’s cathedrals as a catalyst, to embellish the exterior architectural details of your design. All supplies are included. No art experience required!

Please note: This workshop will include the use of sharp cutting tools. Youth registrants under the age of 14 must be accompanied by a registered adult to assist/supervise with cutting tools.

Lunch break: There will be a 45-minute break for lunch starting at 1pm. You may bring your own brown bag lunch or step out for a bite to eat at a local café (recommendations can be provided day of).
