Seniors Social: Ruth Cuthand And Los Carpinteros

In this session, Lauren Spring will look at contemporary installation art and discuss why certain artists (or collectives of artists) may branch out from using traditional painterly or sculptural materials and turn to other objects for inspiration when creating their large-scale works. The results can be both playful and hard-hitting.  

Artist Lauren Renzetti will join us from her home studio to explore how contemporary art can be incorporated into one’s lifestyle, using the example of the Yes movement started in 1966 by conceptual artist Yoko Ono. This positive message inspired Lauren so much that she has stencilled it on most of her clothing. Learn how to stencil on any surface with a simple cut-out, paint brush and acrylic paint to get your own message across.
