Why should youth have all the fun? Adults! Spend the afternoon making art! Explore your inner poet in a RAWK workshop, and learn metalsmithing skills with local jewelry artist, Meg Tang. All event proceeds will support Project 802: RAWK’s expanding literacy center.
A math-centric workshop where we’ll write stories based on age-appropriate mathematical concepts of addition, subtraction, counting, geometry, shapes, and problem-solving. This workshop will introduce kindergarteners and first-graders to the use and presence of math in real-life, everyday situations outside of the classroom.
RAWK and KVCC's Center for New Media (CNM) is partnering once again to celebrate poetry and amplify youth voice and imagination. Students will create their poetry over a course of three weekly RAWK workshops, then teams of CNM animators and storyboard artists will work with the young writers to set their words in motion. Their finished collaborations will be featured at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum during the June 2018 Art Hop weekend.
Using properties of science taught at the 2nd and 3rd grade level, we’ll write stories that explore Earth, its ecosystems, engineering, matter, life cycles, weather, climate, and where and how we fit in and affect our environment. Students’ stories will center around cause and effect, observational and experimental investigation.
At the RAWK Film School, 4th and 5th graders crash through a course in guerilla filmmaking, working in groups to write, produce, and act in their own short films. Using smart phone cameras and editing apps, students will sharpen and exhibit their visual storytelling talents.
