Let's Make Snow Globes!
Taught by Albert Chao
Albert Chao is a designer working at the intersection of technology, art and architecture. He completed a Dual Masters of Architecture and Fine Arts Degree from the University at Buffalo in 2011. His fascination with snow globes comes from his work with Border Town, a ten week studio in Toronto. His fascination with kitsch extends back forever.
In this workshop, we'll create two snow globes each while exploring how these objects fit into the larger story of kitsch and parallel art practices.
Bring a plethora of plastic ﬁgurines, miniature objects and random trinkets to encase in a snowy miniature wonderland! We'll provide the snow globe encasings, adhesives, and of course, the snow.
Together, we’ll build your ideas for winter paradises, fantastic other worlds or even recreations of everyday scenes.
