Field Trip

We visited MOCA at the Goldman Warehouse in Wynwood, and had a VERY interactive experience with the work of collective Friends With You.

Work process

These photos show our group infiltrating Design Dimensions program at the Wolfsonian Museum-FIU, another great free program for teens. For more information about Design Dimensions, call Mark at 305-535-2625.

Thomas Draschan

Thomas Draschan is a filmmaker/video artist we admire. Check out the link to his website. A teeny clip collaging 16mm film together is shown.

visiting artists

We invite artists who have expertise in different areas to visit and teach our group. One of our all time favorites is Dimitry Chamy, awesome genius web and graphic designer. He showed us how to do some basic things using Flash, and also to create our own type fonts.

This is our conference room/lab at the Bass Museum.

This is how it's done

camera-less photography

One of the things we have done in Art to Work workshops is create portrait imagery without using a camera. Instead, we place faces, hands, feet and our favorite props directly on the surface of a scanner. Once we scan the image into the computer, we can manipulate it with all kinds of effects. These are some of the examples made by kids we visited.

The Chronicles of Deming, Lily, and Miriam

We randomly filmed this while we out at the Botanical Gardens. It makes no sense, but it's very funny. Just watch the whole thing, it gets better at the end. If you can't watch it frm this, go to Yay! -Miriam
