Event Details

Come by Venice Arts Sunday December 7th, from 1-4pm for another exciting adult Drop-in Media Storytelling Workshop! This year long series is part of the Community Story Lab, a new program for adults that mirrors the depth of learning and arts engagement in our programs for youth! The Drop-in Labs are free for low income adults.

Led by media artists Michelle Glass & Andrea Dominguez, each month will present a new theme and approach to media-based story telling.

The theme for December's Drop-in Lab is: Exploration of an Emotion

Students will create a work that is inspired by an emotion. How is an emotion communicated in a single moment? Can it be? Does it look like the emotion intended or do we read something else? Students create a simple line drawing, or abstract representation of the emotion using color and line. Next, students will take a photograph of a facial expression for the same emotion. The photo will be printed out in black and white and it will be combined into the 2D work. If time permits, students will select from curated loops of music and combine it with their 2D work using iMovie, creating a looped work. 

Please email Meg at if you are interested in learning more or visit

The Community Story Lab is supported by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation.

Domingo 7 de Diciembre 2015: Arte encarnado – Exploración de la emoción 
Los estudiantes crearán un trabajo inspirado por una emoción. Cómo se comunica una emoción en tan sólo un momento? Es possible hacerlo? Puede verse la emoción que se intentaba comunicar o se ve otra cosa? 

Los estudiantes crearán una línea de dibujo simple o una representación abstracta de la emoción utilizando color y línea. Luego, sacarán una foto de la expression facial de la misma emoción. La foto se imprimirá en blanco y negro y se combinará con el trabajo 2D. 

Si hay tiempo, los estudiantes seleccionarán segmentos musicales, los combinarán con su trabajo 2D y utilizarán iMovie o Powerpoint para animar la transición entre la línea de dibujo y la imágen. 

Interesado en saber más o inscribirse en el Laboratorio Comunitario de Narrativa? Por favor escríba a Meg a o llame al 310.392.0846.

El Laboratorio Comunitario de Narrativa es apoyado por una beca de The James Irvine Foundation.
