601 Tully, the center for engaged artistic practice on Syracuse’s Near West Side, is offering a series of free eco-art classes for children this spring. Classes will be on Monday Evenings, 5:30 – 7:00 pm, beginning on February 4th. All are welcome to register
The classes at 601 Tully are developed by a team of staff members directed by Professor Marion Wilson, founder/director of 601 Tully, in collaboration with program coordinators in art education, ecology, and community arts. This series will help students realize their social and environmental impact. Through a range of media and by sharing personal stories, students will learn through collaboration, constructing their own meaning for “eco art” based on needs and interests, style, and pace for learning. Students will collect materials for up-cycling and create new works of art.
601 Tully art education program coordinator Bobbi Petrocci will be co-instructing
the series with support from Michelle Molloy and Jian Zhong . She says, “The earth and social friendly nature of the classes will
encourage natural, organic and sustainable works with concern for a healthy
community.” Activities will include recycling, composting, planting, and creating
with reclaimed materials, Petrocci says.
