On March 8, HEC-TV Live! invites you to join them for “Inside the Artist’s Studio: Metals and Woods.”
This interactive videoconference will give your students a chance to talk with an artist in his studio as he creates a finished piece in his chosen medium. As you’ll see in the information below, our morning program will feature woodworking artist Matt Keim, and our afternoon program will feature metals artist Robert Longyear. More details including related curriculum standards and learning activities can be found at the CILC web exhibit for the program. Interactive & View Only videoconference slots are available for the program. You may enroll by contacting HEC-TV Live! at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 314-531-4455. Once enrolled, teachers will receive the program’s preparatory and evaluation materials. Register by March 3rd.
Go inside the artist’s studio at Craft Alliance in St. Louis as your students interact with metals artist Robert Longyear or woodworking artist Matt Keim. Students will be able to interact with the artist as each creates a new piece. They’ll be able to ask their questions about how the design is created, what tools are used and why, and see the final piece created. We’ll explore the big questions: Where do ideas for art come from? How is inspiration transformed into a piece of art? How are metals and woods used to create works of art? What techniques are available for the metals and woodworking artist? If a student or two from your school has a metal or woodworked piece they’d like to share with the artist and discuss the processes they used to create it, please let us know. The artists would welcome the opportunity to respond to student work. Cost for the program is FREE.
The morning program will have students interacting with woodworking artist Matt Keim. The afternoon program will have students interacting with metals artist Robert Longyear.
