FACE TO FACE: Environmental Portrait Collage | Civic Art Lab
July 31, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:30 pmFree
In this workshop, participants will create site-based self portrait collages using mindfulness-oriented portrait-drawing and collage techniques to document the aesthetics and social climate of the LES and the East Village.
Zoey Hart and Christopher Spinozzi are Brooklyn-based visual artists, educators, and coordinators of FacetoFace:Brooklyn.
This workshop is a part of Civic Art Lab.
Civic Art Lab (2016) is the second iteration of the project, designed as a pop-up gallery and workshop space in the East Village at Avenue C & 7th Street. The lab will be hosted in partnership with Marc Norov and the Creations Gallery, a mixed-use community pop-up space, adjacent to a community-based bike repair shop. Our programming will continue to be free of cost, produced by volunteer artists, designers, and teachers who lead investigations into diverse themes such as: creative re-use; urban agriculture; sustainable architecture; health & well-being, and environmental justice, to name a few.
Civic Art Lab is hosted by GreenspaceNYC (www.greenspacenyc.org), a non-profit collaborative that develops and curates free educational programming, hands-on workshops, and public design projects that encourage dialogue, enliven public spaces, and promote the future of more equitable and sustainable cities.
