SMMoA Cause for Creativity Workshop Sunday, February 21

SMMOA

This Sunday, February 21, from 1 – 4 pm the Santa Monica Museum of Art is having a workshop you and your family may want to check out. From SMMoA:

Join Santa Monica Museum of Art for this season’s Cause for Creativity workshop – the highly acclaimed educational series in which the museum encourages the public to “make art and make a difference.” Drawing Attention channels your creativity toward advocating for a cause that is close to your heart.

A team of artists and filmmakers will work with participants to create original video clips and drawings. Each clip records the act of drawing meaningful images with messages about such important topics as arts advocacy, social causes, and Find Your Angel in the City of Angels*. All of the video clips will be edited together by SMMoA to make three collaborative films. Enjoy the opportunity to work with professional filmmakers and artists while learning production techniques with a portable Flip video camera. Take your finished drawing home and stay tuned for three final cuts on SMMoA’s website.

Thanks Elizabeth P. for the heads up!
