The Drop-in Story Lab: This is How I See It
Sunday, December 7, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (PST)
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.
The theme for December's Drop-in Lab is: This is How I See It
The personal is political. Political dramas don’t only happen on TV, they affect us overtly and covertly. Influencing the small and big decisions we make individually and as a culture. In this project, students will explore political topics/subjects that are often avoided or trivialized.
Students will create a work of art inspired by their topic/subject matter and write a short narrative as to why they altered, or represented their work they did. Students will sit in a sharing circle and discuss their works with one another, sharing how they hope their view will assist in moving forward to a new perspective.
The Community Story Lab is supported by a grant from The James Irvine Foundation.
Domingo 7 de Diciembre 2015: Arte encarnado – Así es cómo lo veo
Lo personal es politico. Los dramas politicos no suceden solamente en TV, sino que nos afectan abierta y personalmente influenciando nuestras decisions grandes y pequeñas, individuales o culturales. En este proyecto, los estudiantes explorarán tópicos o sujetos politicos que son generalmente evitados o trivializados.
Los estudiantes crearán una obra de arte inspirada en su tema / materia y escribirán un breve relato acerca del motivo por el cúal el mismo ha modificado o representado su trabajo. Los estudiantes compartirán y discutirán sus trabajos en círculo y expresarán sus puntos de vista acerca de cómo esta nueva visión los ayudará a ir para adelante hacia una nueva perspectiva.
