As pat of my Americorps VISTA service and partnership with Explora and 516 ARTS,event: Habitat, Exploring Climate Change through the Arts, I will present a hands-on workshop offering students the opportunity to use projection art and their imaginations to explore climate impacts on diverse ecosystems and allow that to inspire and inform their ideas. Using the iPad app, Tagtool, developed by Austrian artist Markus Dorninger, kids will have fun painting, animating and projecting with light. Participants are asked to bring their own tablets as their “art” tool. For ages 8 and up.
As part of our partnership with The Harwood Teen Engagement Program, STEMarts Lab Teen, Haley Rach, will be coming with me to Albuquerque to lead the workshop at Explora. The Harwood Teen Engagement program offers opportunities for mentorship, civic engagement, and leadership to youth age 13 – 18. Using the Museum as the basis of their Service Learning component, teens gain career-related skills.
This workshop is sponsored by Sube and STEMarts LAB.
If anyone is interested in signing up for this workshop there is still room (maximum 8 students). Please contact Tara.
