South Philadelphia High School

Spring 2015
Classroom Teacher: Barbara Keating
Teaching-Artist: Aki Sare

Using the playful method of exquisite corpse poetry and drawing, a group of students from South Philadelphia High School made artist books. Students created self-portraits using a monotype technique, which were inspired by Michael Mazur’s exhibition The Inferno of Dante. Having both qualities of collaboration and independence in the making of a book gave the students a unique opportunity to experience various contemporary art practices.
