Diana Calderón is an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Phoenix, Arizona. Raised in the borderlands of El Paso, Texas, and Ciudad Juarez, Calderón earned her BFA from Arizona State University. She studied bookmaking and printmaking in Cortona, Italy in the University of Georgia’s Study Abroad Program in 2016 and studied Printmaking at the University of Dallas. She exhibits artwork nationally and internationally. Calderón investigates her ancestral roots and personal migrant journey through performance art and sculptural installation.
Students will discover a new way of creating a distinctive piece that is interdisciplinary and reflects their personal biography or culture and as a liberating practice of reflection and self-identity. Following a dialogue of concepts, participants will explore their own roots or identity using a range of materials. They include, but not limited to, the use of linoleum, ink, paper, thread, fibers, and/or cloth. The goal is for you to explore the process of a methodology and freedom for an end-product by breaking with a correct way to create without traditional instruction and personal filters or judgments. Performance art is also encouraged. Open to all disciplines and skill levels.
