Teensway 2017 | Second Life

Bible Weaving by Teaching Artist Bo Choi

What is the journey that our waste embarks on after it leaves our hands and falls into the trash or recycling can? Can we rework the connection between “trash” and reuse with art and beauty? How can we take the unloved and unworn clothes in our closets and give them a new use and meaning?  

For the 2017 Teensway art program, students will explore these questions and learn about sustainable art practice and techniques. Through a seven week workshop with fiber artist Bo Choi, the students will deconstruct recycled materials, breathe new perspectives and life into them, and reconstruct their “trash” into treasured pieces of art. 

During each weekly workshop the teens will learn some of the basics of fashion design, and fiber art and textile techniques using materials like plastic containers, recycled paper, clothes and found objects. Their new skills will be channeled into their final projects and the students will have a hand at developing their gallery show. Their hard work will be on display within Wing Luke Museum’s Frank Fujii Gallery during the summer months.

Teensway FAQ

What do you do in Teensway?

You work with an artist that will help you make your ideas come to life. We work with paint, ceramics, graphic design, illustration and photography. You will also go on field trips to parks, gardens, and shops to gather inspiration. At the end of the school year, you end up with a piece of artwork to be proud of which will be on display at the museum during summer months.

Do you really make exhibits?

Yes! The artwork you make at Teensway is shown in one of our exhibition spaces. The neat thing is, you get to decide how that room will look. Everything from paint colors, how you want to display your art, where the spotlights should go, all of this will be decided by you!

Do you have to be Asian American to be in Teensway?

Not at all. Everyone can be a part of Teensway!
