Celebrating Three Weeks of the Fine Arts Summer Intensive!

ArtSeed is proud to have completed our annual immersive artmaking Intensive with two in-person locations at opposite ends of the city: ArtSeed’s Presidio WorkSpaces at Tides Converge, and at ArtSeed’s Hunters Point Shipyard studio. All-day online connections between these two sites brought both camps together for structured presentations and Activities. Participants studied with eight in-person instructors who were also accessible via Google Meet. Additionally, four remote presenters hosted “Field Trips” to Seattle, Washington; Frisco, Texas; plus Petaluma and Emeryville, CA! All this happened during weekdays, July 12 – 30, 2021, 9 am – 5 pm. Participants ages 9 and older largely worked one-on-one with teaching artists and adult volunteers to develop pieces for their individual portfolios and for several collaborative projects. Click here to see some photos! 

Everything culminates in public receptions (both opening: Thursday, September 9, 5–7 pm and closing: Saturday, October 93–5 pm) for the exhibition New Normal: Learning from the Past to Move Forward Together. Enter the Presidio’s Café RX doors to find China Brotsky and Seed Galleries, at Tides Converge, in accordance with San Francisco’s Health Order and Health Order Directive No. 2020-14.

ArtSeed Statement: “I discovered ArtSeed through my internship at the CA Lawyers for the Arts, and my experience so far has been wonderful. I was able to meet artists from various backgrounds who have helped me grow. I was encouraged to experiment and think about art in ways that I hadn’t before.”
