2019 DESTINATION Workshops


 

Destination Workshops are Kids & Art's signature workshops where we offer one of a kind experiences at creative venues for children with cancer and their care circles. We have been extremely fortunate to have had many incredible hosts in the past 10 years, including Pixar, Google, Crucible, Palo Alto Art Center, Pacific Art League, Public Glass, etc. Kids, young adults, and caregivers have the opportunity to explore art-making with professional artists in these unique settings, while they form connection and community with other families also facing the cancer journey.

This year of Destination Workshops will continue to bring families to various areas of the Bay to be immersed in art and the creative process. We hope you will join us!

2019

Jan 26th, Oliver Klink Workshop at PhotoCentral Gallery located at 1099 E Street, Hayward, CA 11am-1pm

We had an incredible start to 2019 at a workshop with photographer Oliver Klink exploring his current exhibit, Cultures in Transition, at PhotoCentral in Hayward. It was amazing to hear the stories behind many of his stunning black and white images of people and cultures throughout Asia. Participants engaged in dialogue about the subjects of Oliver's photos, as well as about the process of finding the right shot, capturing facial expressions, and catching the ideal light. Then, everyone had a chance to recreate poses and feelings of favorite images. Thank you, Oliver, Kate and Geir for hosting Kids & Art! We had a wonderful time.

Feb 24th - Destination Workshop at the deYoung Museum, SF, 2-4:30PM

What an incredible day at the deYoung Museum for our group at Kids & Art! It was exhilarating to be in the presence of so many great works of art, and the kids took inspiration as they created their own masterpieces. Led by docents Amy, Charlotte and Diane, our kids and families viewed various pieces of art connected by the theme of boats. What a joy to hear the ideas of these imaginative kids as the docents encouraged them to examine each piece with careful thought and consideration. After the tours, we headed to the 8th floor classrooms to create with deYoung Access Teaching Artist, Jennifer Ewing, and K&A artist ,Cecile Picard. Using recycled water bottles, coffee-dyed paper, sticks, feathers and an assortment of other supplies, everyone was invited to design their own Spirit Boat. As expected, the ideas and imagination of these young artists were boundless, resulting in stunning boats of every variety. Thank you tremendously to the deYoung Museum, to Karen and Sonia from the Access Programs, to Access Teaching Artist Jennifer Ewing, to Cecile Picard, and to docents Diane, Amy & Charlotte. Thank you to board members Teri and Rinat for joining us for the day and to K&A volunteers Kiran, Lauren and Mahek for making the day run smoothly.
