Kimberly M. Becoat, 701 CCA’s current Artist-in-Residence, will host a hands-on workshop for adults age 18 or older in which participants will create multi-media collage pieces made from a range of materials, including found objects, paint, and textured paper. Artwork made in the context of the workshop will be inspired by Urbania, Becoat’s most recent body of work exploring notions of “home” as related to housing shortages in urban areas and her experience growing up in New York City project housing. Participants will be asked to think about how these social issues have impacted urban and rural areas of South Carolina, particularly the Columbia area and the Midlands.

Additionally, participants are encouraged to bring small found objects they wish to incorporate in their work.
