FRANCO MORAGREGA is proud to extend the invitation to our art appreciation workshops. Each workshop consists of 4 classes a month that will revolve around the current contemporary art movements, subjects and techniques. These topics are to generate an interactive dialogue between the audience and its professors which are actively involved artists.

The participation of professional and passionate individuals who will be imparting the class subjects is of our entire excitement. Each workshop leader is currently successfully involved within the art professional community; they will each share their knowledge and experience to broaden our spectrum to the world of contemporary art.

Besides learning and networking with community members in the related fields, each session will include wine and beer tasting from Baja and Cali region as well as Hors d’ oeuvres.

The AAW Workshops will take place at our new location at IDEA1 Building.

SNEAK PEEK OF WORKSHOP LEADERS

Kerianne Quick is currently Assistant Professor of Jewelry and Metalwork at San Diego State University. Her scholarly research mixes traditional and digitally driven making processes with material focused historical and ethnographic inquiries to consider how objects can be embedded with meaning. Kerianne has produced several bodies of material specific work considering subject matters that range from communal sheep farming practices in the Orkney Isles to the derelict brickyards of New York’s Hudson Valley.
She is currently researching contemporary forms of portable wealth among migrants seeking asylum/refugee status and economic migrants. With her creative practice, Kerianne aims to tell hidden stories through object making – by considering source, conveyance, and material specificity. Her research is rooted in exploring craft and materiality as cultural phenomena with an emphasis on jewelry and personal adornment.
