Photography Wheatpasting with Instructor, Julia Forrest

March 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Students will blend together photography and street art using the guerrilla style art form known as wheat pasting. Using printed photographs from home, students will learn how to make their own glue out of household materials. This practice is still used by street artists today as a way to cheaply and effectively put-up paper posters and notices to walls. Looking at artists like JR and Jesse Treece for inspiration, students will reflect on the message they want to convey to the world and create a layered collage of images.

About the Instructor
Julia Forrest is a Brooklyn based artist. She works strictly in film and prints in a darkroom she built within her apartment. Her own art has always been her top priority in life and in this digital world, she will continue to work with old processing. Anything can simply be done in photoshop, she prefers to take the camera, a tool of showing reality, and experiment with what she can do in front of the lens.

Julia is currently working as a teaching artist at the Brooklyn Museum, USDAN Art Center, and Abrons Art Center. As an instructor, she thinks it is important to understand that a person can constantly stretch and push the boundaries of their ideas with whatever medium of art they choose. Her goal is for her audience to not only enjoy learning about photography, but to see the world in an entirely new way and continue to develop a future interest in the arts. www.JuliaForrest.com
