Ready or Not Young Voices
English with Spanish interpretation
Join Yrneh Gabon, 18th Street Arts Center artist in residence, in conversation about art and activism in a fast-changing global world, where day to day youths make an argument for social change as they see it. How can we use art to bring about social change and what ideas you have? How are you affected and coping? What advice do you have for others who are struggling? What are changes you would want to see and where to start? Each participant will contribute a word or phrase that expresses how they are feeling, we will talk about it for a few minutes, and we will build a poetic illustration of words that we can read together.
Materials: Paper and pencil/pen
Recommended Ages: Best for 10-14 years old, but others welcome to join.
Starting April 15 and running through the end of June, Arts Learning Lab @ Home is a series of live online arts classes for kids and families schooling from home. These hands-on artmaking workshops (which will be posted as on-demand videos after each workshop) are led by professional artists in residence at 18th Street as well as members of our national and international artist community. The workshops will be taught in both English and Spanish for those teachers that are bilingual, and will be live translated in closed captioning in both English and Spanish.The workshops cover a range of fun, hands-on, and participatory ideas like meditation through drawing with artist Claudia Concha, storytelling with artist Yrneh Gabon, a rhythm workshop in your kitchen with professional drummer and 2020 Make Jazz Fellow Shirazette Tinnin, and a monster movement workshop with performance artists Beck + Col.
