Tejer y Poder
y Poder is a fiber-arts program where apprentices learn and practice
traditional and contemporary forms as a means to explore cultural identity,
labor and social issues. In
addition, apprentices learn about marketing, merchandising, self-promotion
skills and business plans, which will prepare them to sell their goods in the
future. Teens will delve into the handmade/DIY world, and learn about craft
fairs and what it takes to put one together.
and the Document
Social Photography and the Document is a digital photography that provides teens with an advanced opportunity to further develop skills in the medium of the digital photography while learning new practices in research-based, social art making practices. Students will go beyond digital photography and develop new skills in digital video/sound production creating multi-media projects focused on current social and community-based themes of interest.
