Cardboard Upcycling Workshop AND Screen Printing

Date: 
09/16/2017 - 12:00pm - 4:00pm
Location: 
Bridge Community Center 143 Baldwin St. in JC.

The Department of Public Art (DPA) will sponsor two workshops on Sat. Sept 16th from 12-4 at the Bridge Community Center 143 Baldwin St. in JC. The workshops are in preparation for the Oct. 7th Mural Fest at Floral Ave. Park in JC. In addition to painting murals, children will have an entire Box City to paint and play in. The workshop will design the cardboard playhouses, cardboard animals and mask making for small children to paint and take home. This workshop is for adults and older teens to create the structures that will be painted at Mural Fest.

At the same time and place Andrew Smith will demonstrate and teach the basics of screen printing. The class will screen Mural Fest T-shirts as part of the workshop.  All workshops are free. Participants are asked to RSVP by emailing deptofpublicart@gmail.com.

Free Mural Arts and Documentary Photography Workshop Oct. 1

This year DPA will sponsor a mural workshop starting Sunday Oct. 1st and continuing through Mural Fest Oct. 7th for community members. The workshop will show participants how to plan a mural, including gridding the design, prepping the space, and then painting it throughout the week and finishing 5 murals at Mural Fest. Another workshop will teach people how to use camera phones to document community events, also starting on Oct. 1st.

The Department of Public Art (DPA) and re-BOLD, a BU student group, will sponsor the 4th Mural Fest at Floral Ave. Park in Johnson City on Saturday October 7th from 11-4 pm. The Village of Johnson City has given permission to paint murals on several structures at Floral Ave. Park and there will be several activities for children and adults. "Leaving behind permanent murals is important," said Peg Johnston of DPA, "and just as important is engaging people in the process of creating art in public places.”

Similarly, DPA is partnering with Southern Tier Solar Works to create solar lanterns for neighbors: At Mural Fest children and adults can build their own solar lantern.

Mural Fest has received support from Chenango Co Arts Council (DEC NYS Council on the Arts) and the Hoyt Foundation, Broome County Tourism Grant, Town of Union Community Development, Golden Paints, Daniel’s Paints, and other sponsors as well as a Go Fund Me fundraising campaign.
