grunt gallery is excited to announce a new youth arts engagement project entitled, gruntCraft
The project uses the popular computer game Minecraft as a tool and studio to create new and incredible structures in a virtual world. Youth participants will be mentored by professional artists to explore their creative processes and discover new ways to approach art making through a collaborative, online, video game environment.
Follow the development of the virtual studio by subscribing to gruntCraft’s YouTube site. As part of the studio program, youth studio members (aged 11-18) will have access to professional artists feedback and mentorship, 3D printing workshops, and opportunities to participate in studio open houses at grunt gallery.
gruntCraft will occur from July to December 2014 and is led by artist and project manager, Demian Petryshyn. Please visit gruntcraft.ca for more information and project updates.
We’re on the lookout for youth participants and volunteers.
Feel free to check out the studio server at: 126.96.36.199. If you are interested in becoming a youth studio member (aged 11-18) or would like to get involved as a volunteer, please contact Demian at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit gruntcraft.ca for more info (coming soon).
