601 Tully, the center for engaged artistic practice on Syracuse’s Near West Side, offers a series of free eco-art classes for children. Classes will be on Saturdays, 1:30 – 3:00 pm, from September 21-November 23, 2013. Any elementary or middle school age child is 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 children 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.
