The Japanese artist Takashi Murakami combines highly refined classical Japanese painting techniques with distinctive Pop sensibilities. Known for his “Superflat” style, directly influenced by manga and anime, the artist creates works that explode with color and playfulness. For the 2015–16 ski season, in collaboration with Aspen Skiing Company, Murakami has produced four unique images, all of which embody his trademark visual aesthetic.
This two-day retreat for educators who teach K–12 level students in schools and nonprofit organizations will explore how to envision and enact teaching practices that are relevant and responsive to the classroom and community. This event is hosted with Mike Murawski, Director of Education and Public Programs at the Portland Art Museum.
July 22–26, 9 AM–3 PM
