Point of Contact’s multicultural arts education program for youths, EL PUNTO Art Studio, presents a multilingual experiential art studio workshop for youths 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 2017 offers a combination of artistic disciplines such as drawing, design, storytelling and technology. Students will be able to transform abstract marks, forms and concepts to tell narrative stories in imaginative ways. The younger students will be focusing on 2D drawing and painting while the older participants will integrate their creations into stop-motion film.
2017 Workshops: Jan 28, Feb 4, Feb 11, Feb 18, Feb 25, Mar 4
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.
