Outside/In: In this experience, we will visit a natural landscape and make ephemeral artworks using materials found on-site. We will first engage with the landscape and then work in groups to collaboratively make sculptures inspired and influenced by the materials, the site and through conversation. This focus on process over product, serves to refuel and unlock creativity and connection.


REAP (ReEnergize/Activate/Process) is a project run by AMY BERK and Laura Boles Faw, professional artists and teachers. They have been collaboratively teaching for 4 years and believe wholeheartedly in how collaboration can fuel creativity. In addition to REAP, Amy works collaboratively on a number of projects including the web publication stretcher.org and with the artists group (TWCDC) most recently for Temporary Structures at the Walter and McBean Gallery at the San Francisco Art Institute. She co-founded the Meridian Interns Program in 1996 serving inner-city teens and is currently teaching a mural course at The Urban High School. She has taught at SFAI since 2006, serving as Chair for the Contemporary Practice program from 2011-13. In addition, she teaches adults in the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Studio Arts Program at the University of California Berkeley Extension. This fall, Amy's work is included in the exhibition "Objects of Mutual Affection" at Royal NoneSuch Gallery in Oakland.
