"QUIK" Lin Felton:
"When I Grow Up" is a workshop series initiating and encouraging an appreciation for art by cooperating with a working artist in a specific group effort through various sessions of simple exercises of arts and crafts-like medium through mature painting projects. Initially, the participants will be introduced to the work of a seemingly unorthodox artist.
The artist, QUIK will relate his work of alphabetic symbolism as his expressive means in which has developed into an international career in the arts. QUIK's contemporary (graffiti-inspired) lettering and the exciting potential of creating a similar style of artwork can serve as a group project amongst many other creative sessions and exploration to illustrative themes. An introduction to QUIK and the cultural nature of New York graffiti-oriented art will be enhanced by film; dias; books; an introductory lecture; and possible brief demonstration. Later within a classroom-like environment, each participant will create coloured sketches depicting themselves in the future with imagery pertainting to their desired work occupation. For example: "When I grow up I (they) would like to be a Fireman." Further, the sketches and ideas will be rendered with paint or other materials in a cohesive group effort for public display, stimulating a sense of pride for one's goals by the execution of such beliefs through a universal medium: art.
