The Open Studio Project, which is produced by the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, is a "Collection of Art-making Ideas by Artists". Open Studio "aims to make contemporary arts education accessible to teachers and classrooms across the nation and around the world."
Lead artist, and MacArthur Award-winner, Mark Bradford, explains his inspiration for the project in a video on their site. His delightful 3-part lesson plan is excerpted below:
Song Text Piece: Arrangement/Subtraction
Pick a song with lyrics that you like, then type the lyrics into the computer. Pick a font you like and make the type size 36 or 48, so that it’s big enough to read at a distance, and then print the whole thing out. Cut the words out and arrange them on a large poster-sized sheet of paper. Finally, use scissors and cut out words that you don’t like, or that make you feel bad or uncomfortable.
… if you re-arrange the words out of order, is it a remix?
