The ModboCo is a brand new school of art located at Ivywild (1604 S. Cascade Ave., Colorado Springs, CO, 80905) Our first round of classes begins on August 19th, 2013.
Art History is Fun!!!
“Sound Smart at the Museum” is an art history lecture designed to introduce you to some artists and concepts that may be new to you. This will not be your typical “dates and time” style art history talk. Think of it as speed dating, a quick introduction in a fun environment. Van Gogh might still be your favorite artist at the end of the lecture, but at least you’ll be able to say why.
November 16th 11:00 – 2:30 $30
Ever feel like you’re in a bit of a rut-rut-rut? We all have patterns and comfort zones that tend to limit how we evolve in life, career or passions. Creativity is often an issue of access not skill. There will be exercises, activities and projects in this very hands-on workshop. In a addition to learning the use of creativity for artistic endeavors, there will many opportunities to explore the value of creative problem resolution in everyday life, work and future endeavors. This is not a lecture nor a touchy-feely seminar. It will be entertaining and fun–guaranteed. You need brin nothing but an open mind and curious spirit.
November 2nd 10:00 – 5:00 (with a lunch break) $75, materials included
The first part of this seminar will take an in-depth look into one of the enlightened figures of modern Art. We will explore both major and obscure works, and the little known facts about the artist’s life. You will learn his artistic and philosophical influences, passions and lifestyle. LeRad will illustrate his rapid path through Impressionism, Cubism, Futurism, Body Art, DADA, Surrealism, Kinetic, Conceptual and Anti Art. You will be taken on his travel journeys, and learn how he separated himself from outside influences including the financial support of his endeavors. In the second half of the class, LeRad will guide the participants through Marcel Duchamp’s process with a personal experience of making a small piece of art based on his experimental concepts.
