  • Adam Linder is a choreographer based between Berlin and Los Angeles, working both in theatre and visual art contexts. He has been developing a dance based  format he calls Choreographic Services since 2013. This aspect of his work is focused on underscoring real time and economic conditions that are integral to the discipline of  choreography. At Otis Linder will introduce this format both conceptually and practically, discussing why 'servicing' is the relevant way for his work to publicly engage.

Continuing Education Course

Leonardo's Apprentice: Ages 5-8 (Multiple Media Focus)

When Leonardo da Vinci was young, he apprenticed with an older more experienced artist to learn the art trade. This early art experience introduced Leonardo to various materials and techniques: grinding and mixing pigments, learning geometry, mixing of colors, preparing panels, working of clay, and the actual act of painting itself. Using the old and modern masters as inspiration, students learn the fundamental techniques and principles of drawing and painting. In this course, young apprentices are introduced to basic art concepts including use of color, line, shape, texture, and composition, while learning a range of technical methods used by the masters themselves. Students learn to use various drawing and painting materials in a nurturing atmosphere, which stresses experimentation and exploration. The course is designed to heighten sensory awareness and build self-confidence in fundamental art making skills.

First class materials: $35 lab fee payable to instructor for supplies.
