Colorful sculptural constructions galore during Sarah Braman's Wide Rainbow Workshop with Girls Prep Middle School in the Lower Eastside yesterday after school. Sarah gave an awesome slideshow of her monumental sculptures and installations that inspired the girls to construct their very own colorful artworks with found objects and discarded materials! Sarah brought in pieces of neon plastics, wood she found upstate, mirrored pieces and debris she's collected from her studio for the girls to work with. After her inspiring slideshow of recent gallery exhibitions and artworks indoors and out in nature, she gave us a understanding of balance + helped us build strong foundations, but quickly let the creative juices flow! Check our all the awesome works of arts and sculptures inspired by Sarah!

MoMA Curator Lucy Gallun gave our high school girls from the Lower Eastside Girls Club a thoughtful Wide Rainbow Walkthrough of Nan Goldin 's prolific photography and explained the premise for her slide show The Ballad of Sexual Dependency which was first exhibited throughout Lower Manhattan in the 1980s. All the images on view at MoMA in this exhibition documented her personal experience and captured a generation/moment with romance, sorrow, and an intimate point of view! Thank you Lucy for sharing this poignant exhibition with the Lower Eastside Girls Club today after school!
We had the absolute pleasure of working with renown artist and fringe fashion designer Susan Cianciolo who hosted a Wide Rainbow Workshop with the Young Women's Leadership School in Bushwick today. She created an embroidery activity for the girls to create there own fashion, pieces, pillows, or even little sculptures inspired by here own works of art + DIY fashion lines from the 90s. Susan also gave the girls a tutorial by drawing on some recycled fabric swatches, adding colors with fabric markers, giving basic sowing instructions to make there own works of art come alive!! Check out all the fun fabrics and recycled materials the girls got to play with during Susan Cianciolo's Wide Rainbow Workshop yesterday in Bushwick!!
Sculptor and contemporary artist Elizabeth Jaeger joined us for another Wide Rainbow Workshop today at the Young Women's Leadership High School of Brooklyn. She presented a cool slide-show of some recent exhibitions, sculptures, and talked about her artist process. After inspiring the girls with her artworks, she explained a two-part workshop sharing origami techniques as well as making little sculptures + jewelry with 'magic clay'. Look at these all these fun images of the girls creating origami boxes to enclose their very own resin and bedazzled jewelry sculptures! Thank you Elizabeth for such a fabulous workshop and introducing us to new materials, the Japanese art of folding, and letting us create wearable art with you!!
