(re)Capturing Youth: Wax Resist Memory Portraits

Subject

Aging

Description

Passages of time and concepts of aging become more concrete as we age, but during adolescence remain somewhat abstract. Learners are aware of milestones of getting older- driving, graduating from high school, college, marriage or partnership- but are less focused on milestones and rituals of their personal pasts. This unit asks learners to reflect and respond to passing time, to explore the visual culture of childhood and change, and to create work that seeks to thoughtfully and playfully recapture youth.
