Summer Camp 2022 (12 - 16 years): Finding Myself in Nature

Starts - Wednesday 17 August 2022

Alonsa Guevara is a New York-based artist originally from Rancagua, Chile. Her paintings are a window to an imaginary universe where the lines between fantasy and reality are blurred. Guevara’s work explores questions of womanhood, identity and belonging while celebrating the connection between humankind and nature.

Her main inspiration derives from the experiences of living in three different countries, and is especially impacted by the formative memories of her childhood spent living in the Ecuadorian rainforest with her family.

After living in Ecuador for seven years, Alonsa moved back to Chile to receive her BFA from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile in 2009. In 2011, she moved to New York to complete the MFA Program at the New York Academy of Art. She was awarded the Elizabeth Greenshields Grant in 2013 and received the Academy's Fellowship award in 2015.

Alonsa's work has been published in Forbes Magazine, Time Out NYC Magazine, VICE, among others and has been exhibited internationally, including China, Mexico, Denmark, Argentina and Chile. Her most recent solo show Apparitions was in February 2021 at Anna Zorina Gallery in NYC.

Place yourself in the natural world using a canvas and acrylic paint! Instructor Alonsa Guevara will help participants find connections between themselves and nature and express those connections through painting. A Q&A game will be incorporated into the workshop to help participants connect with each other and the natural world around them. Using their observations and imagination, the participants will learn about how to use acrylic painting as a medium to paint their nature-themed self-portraits.
