  • 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.

iPads in the Classroom: A Creative Visual Arts Tool

This one-day workshop introduces teachers to the creative potential of the iPad for both instructors and students. Create digital works of art by downloading and operating free to low-cost user-friendly art applications (apps) that provide access to virtual art materials including digital crayons, markers, and paint. Explore the basics -- opening a new file, using the various drawing/painting tools, saving, accessing, and emailing artwork files; and more complex operations -- working with layers, expanded color pallets, multiple brushes featuring opacity and size controls, image transformation options, and text inclusion. Covers step-by-step instruction in utilizing the iPAd as a tool for tutorial creation, project documentation, and visual presentation. Ideal for classroom teachers who wish to engage students creatively, introduce basic art techniques, and incorporate student artwork into classroom projects.
