Visiting Artist Series 
Work with and learn from some of today's most significant working artists.

Each year, the Visiting Artist Series brings several notable artists to the League to teach master classes, which supplement existing ongoing classes and workshops. This extraordinary opportunity allows students and artists from the community to work with and learn from some of today’s most significant working artists. The League is indebted to the visionary support of the Olson-Vander Heyden Foundation and the advisory committee.      

  



RASHAWN GRIFFIN


MASTER CLASS
Material as Sculpture


This workshop is for artists who are interested in working with a particular found material or object in tandem with sculptural techniques. The physical and metaphoric dimensions of materials will be explored in this workshop. The process of how artists interact with materials can be parallel to the experience of thinking. The use of the traditionally three-dimensional will be used in relation to natural materials in their raw and processed states, as well as the found and collected materials.
