MCASD’s Teen Art Council (TAC) presents DocShop, a program that pairs a documentary film with a hands-on workshop for high school students.
Dogtown and Z-Boys explores the rebirth of skateboarding in Los Angeles during the 1970s. Newly-developed industrial materials helped to create a better skateboard and also inspired the artists featured in the Museum’s current exhibition, Phenomenal: California Light, Space, Surface, to create works of art with these materials.
Following the 90-minute film, participants will explore selected works from Phenomenal with members of the Teen Art Council and then experiment with using industrial materials towards an artistic end in a TAC-led workshop.
