During this three-day Art & Activism workshop, “Examining Gendered Aesthetics: Queer/Trans studies and the Mundane,” Des Moines Teens are invited to work with Artist Max Colby. Through an investigation in collage, participants will dissect objects and materials of their choosing which have an aesthetic that has either personally or culturally impacted their understanding of self, gender, and/or sexuality. Throughout the course, participants will address objectives as artists affecting social change and goals in breaking down barriers as LGBTQIA+ artists and change makers.
