Visiting Artist Series
Visiting Artist Workshop & Film Screening: Sunny Nestler
Fri Jun 16th 5:30pm - 8:00pm in the Greenhut Gallery
Sunny Nestler is a multi-disciplinary artist from Arizona who lives and works in Vancouver, BC Canada. Sunny uses drawing, performance, video, animation, crafting, and bookmaking to interpret DNA mutation and biological life cycles. Sunny’s work has been exhibited, screened, and performed both nationally, and internationally. Sunny currently works at the AMS Bike Co-op at University of British Columbia and is Sessional Faculty at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in Vancouver, BC.
This adult workshop, "Animation Collaboration" with Sunny Nestler will lead participants through the process of creating a short, hand drawn animated video. Using intuitive drawing techniques inspired by plant life cycles, the group will take turns drawing frames without anyone seeing the full picture until the end. Participants will keep the frames that they draw and have access to the complete video after the workshop both online and a live screening.
Visiting Artist Youth Workshop: Valerie Peacock
Through collaboration with the Visiting Artist, Sunny Nestler, Education & Volunteer Coordinator, Valerie Peacock will offer a simultaneous and adjacent youth-focused workshop in Project Space, called Animation Collaboration for Youth for ages 5 and up.
