Creative hands-on programming is available for learners of all ages inspired by the works of Jeffrey Augustine Songco. Students can experience Jeffrey’s work with fieldtrip programming; but students aren’t the only ones getting creative. Behind the scenes experiences, a nostalgic prom night, specially curated dinners with Jeffrey and Chef Mindy Trafman, and so much more are also available for adults this fall + winter!
Student Programming Key Concepts & Ideas:
Educational Outreach Programming
Program Period: February 5, 2024 – March 9, 2024
Grades 9th – 12th | 5 visits, 1 with a visiting art professional | 60 – 90 minute visits
How do spaces and people around us make us feel a sense of belonging or exclusion? What makes us who we are, and how do we communicate that with those around us? Using personal journal entries as inspiration and insight, students will reflect on how they are shaped by different outside influences and their own internal monologue, and consider how they show up in the world. Students will create a multi-dimensional self-portrait that explores different facets of their identity and the delicate balance between the need to express ourselves as individuals and the need to belong to a group. Students will meet interdisciplinary artist Jeffrey Augustine Songco, and explore his artistic methods of photography, design, performance, and found-object installation to create original works of art that express the self in many layers.
Classrooms will need access to a printer, the internet, and chromebooks or ipads. Cell phones may be used instead.
Field Trips to the SCA
Most suitable for Middle & High School | Single visit to the SCA | 45 – 90 minutes
