Point of Contact’s multicultural arts education program, EL PUNTO Art Studio, presents a multilingual experiential art studio workshop for youth between the ages of 6 and 14 in Syracuse, NY. Designed by Punto de Contacto – Point of Contact, this contemporary art seminar is facilitated in collaboration with local and guest artists and through partnerships with community-based organizations over the course of several weeks. These activities culminate in an installation of the work produced. This installation will feature a reception for the students, parents, and the general community. The reception will be free to the public and refreshments will be served.
El PUNTO 2018 offers a combination of artistic disciplines such as drawing, design, painting, storytelling and technology. Students will be able to transform concepts of their every day heroes to tell narrative stories in imaginative ways. Using projection technologies, principals of fashion design and developing story boards, students will be able to collaborate in an immersive program that allows them to celebrate their every day heroes. The younger students will be focusing on 2D drawing and painting, costume design and scene development, while the older participants will integrate their storyboard planning skills with projection and set design.
2018 Workshops: Feb 3, Feb 10, Feb 17, Feb 24, Mar 3, Mar 10
Location: La Casita Cultural Center, 109 Otisco Street, Syracuse, NY 13204
The workshops will culminate with an exhibition of the participant’s final projects in the beginning of May at La Casita Cultural Center.
