We’re proud to announce we’ll be hosting two workshops in Fort Greene Park on Saturday as part of our Art for Community Transformation and Artz Biz Kidz pop-up arts programming. These sessions are offered for free, open to the public, with a focus on helping youth aged 11-18 create a vision for their community that inspires action and ownership for the betterment of the neighborhood, while also picking up some visual arts skills.
Have an idea for something you’d like to see changed or made better in Brooklyn? More green space, inclusive planning, maybe a community garden? Or maybe you just want to work on your drawing, painting or collage skills?
Join our founder and artist-teacher, Carl “Musa” Hixson, as he leads a community visioning session, leveraging drawing and collage, to help you express your vision along with some painting and drawing exercises.
What will you get? You’ll leave with a vision board showing you vision for the future of your community, and hopefully a few neighbors that want to help you turn it into reality.
No need to RSVP, we’ll see you tomorrow! Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
