Summer Teacher Institute

 

Finding Your Flow through Art & Activism

 

If you are not familiar with Corita Kent, she was an artist, an activist, nun, educator and a pioneer. Working primarily as a print-maker, she taught elementary and college in Los Angeles for 20 years. “Consider everything an experiment,” was one of her guiding principles. Not only did she produce her own work, but she also collaborated on large scale works with her students. Her artwork was a reflection of the times. Inspired by billboards, advertisements, spiritual texts, current events, and newspapers she created colorful, multi-layered pieces with deep meaning. Kent encouraged and embodied experimentation, close-looking and social justice throughout her career and in her life.  

 

Kent used a series of 10 Rules in her classroom. Each day of the Summer Teacher Institute, we will focus on one of the following rules as a theme for that day’s activities:

 

Rule 4: Consider everything an experiment.

Rule 6: Nothing is a mistake. There’s no win and no fail. There’s only make.

Rule 8: Don’t try to create and analyze at the same time. They’re different processes. 

 

In addition to learning more about the life and art of Corita Kent, you will enjoy a variety of art-making sessions, workshops, docent guided tours and presentations.

 

If you need accessibility accommodations for any programs or events, please email access@cincyart.org. Please contact us at least two weeks in advance to ensure accommodations can be made.
