Collins LLC Arts Council continues to offer exciting oppportunities for LLC members through weekly trainings and open hours and imaginative program offerings. As part of their position on the Council, student coordinators are tasked with coming up with at least one program for the community per semester. In early October, our ceramics coordinators and photography coordinators both rose to the challenge.
Photography coordinator Mike Randall's Cyanotype Workshop was a small workshop where residents learned how to make cyanotpes, also known as sunprints or blueprints. Collins Arts Council provided the cyanotype paper to create the images and residents were encouraged to bring their own items to create images of for the event happening out in the Courtyard. COVID-19 event restrictions meant that students had to sign up in advance to participate as well as sign an attendance sheet when they arrived at the event. Hand sanitizer, wipes, masks, and social distancing were all required elements of the program.
Ceramics coordinators Aralia Pawlick and Sydney Crider also tackled having an in-person event in the time of COVID-19. Their Clay in the Sun event took place in early October, also out in the Collins Courtyard. The co-coordinators moved pottery wheels from the ceramics studio to the courtyard so that residents would be able to watch them throw or join in on a wheel themselves and get in-person instruction while working.
