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: 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.

Please email Meg at meg@venice-arts.org if you are interested in learning more or visit http://venicearts.org/

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. 

Interesado en saber más o inscribirse en el Laboratorio Comunitario de Narrativa? Por favor escríba a Meg a meg@venice-arts.org o llame al 310.392.0846.

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