Cause for Creativity - Drawing Attention

Join SMMoA 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.

*Find Your Angel in the City of Angels is the theme of the 2010 Bresee Foundation’s 5th Annual Youth Film Festival on Social Justice (Thursday, May 27, 2010). Participants who draw attention to this topic with their video can be included in the festival submission.

Recommended for ages 7 to adult
Supplies, refreshments, snacks, and inspiring ambiance provided.
