Registration for spring is now closed. Unfortunately, due to the volume of enrollments for Skill Yourself, we are no longer able to offer spots in the class.
Skill Yourself is a hybrid course comprised of skill-based workshops and an immersive, interdisciplinary, collaborative exhibition project. Participants will learn multiple DIY techniques including mold-making and casting, screenprinting, videomoshing, and synthesizer building in an inclusive and welcoming learning environment. No previous experience with media is required. Students will be provided with a list of cheap materials that we recommend they source in order to participate in all demos. Throughout the term, participants will collaboratively design an installation to be exhibited in May 2017 at BHQFU’s gallery space, FUG, that will include works, environments, and performances developed during class.
