December 16 marks the last T/AP meeting before we see each other again in 2013. And what a way to end the semester…

Our teen artists had the opportunity to work with the very talented Sally Glass, a CentralTrak Artist in Residence with a background in photography and an art practice that includes recontextualizing everyday objects. In preparation for the day’s project, Sally brought along a supply of ordinary things.

This week’s meeting of T/AP saw a change of pace. For the next four sessions, the teen artists will work with a different artist each class to complete several one-day projects. Our December 9 class was led by the Modern’s Assistant Curator of Education, Nathan Green. Nathan began with a brief lecture about the artist Mark Bradford, then presented an interview with the artist from Art:21, PBS’s award-winning educational series about contemporary artists.

December 2 was T/AP’s final day with Iris Bechtol. The students were tasked with completing their Merzbau-inspired projects. Using corrugated cardboard, colored tape, and other available media, the teen artists constructed works that were modular and easy to both assemble and disassemble.

Our T/AP meeting for 18 November began with Iris leading a critique of everyone’s work from the previous week. Everyone took turns discussing the motivations behind their projects—explaining their inspirations and methodological approaches while receiving critical feedback and helpful commentary from fellow students.
