Art Abandonment Project and Workshop Seriesartschool

The Art School of Peterborough will be presenting a series of separate workshops for youth, teens, and adults in a variety of mediums. These workshops will allow students the satisfaction of the art-making process itself with the end result showing its effect art has on others. All artwork for this project will be left or abandoned within the community for others to find. Individuals will determine their location of abandonment. It could be a complete act of kindness or for a complete stranger. All artwork will contain a specific tag that will associate the work with Artsweek 2014, The Art School of Peterborough’s Art Abandonment project and a link to facebook and twitter. Participants in this movement do not have to take part in the workshop. Individuals can create within their own spaces and submit to the project as well. Along with this experience of art making, individuals will see the positive effect art can have on themselves, others and the community. This movement will be launched during Artsweek 2014 and will extend into the future
