from Jane Chesson @ the DCCA, please contact her directly firstname.lastname@example.org and/or let me know if you are interested in this opportunity:
Carlos Ferguson will be an Artist in Residence at the DCCA from 3/15/10 - 5/7/10. He will be partnering with 10 - 12 year olds at the Greater Newark Boys & Girls Club for the Residency. They will be creating a stop motion animated video using cut paper. This video will be screened on May 7th at our Art & Community Outdoor Video Screening and Picnic from 5 - 9pm on the Wilmington Riverfront/Justison Landing.
Carlos will also be speaking for our Art Salad Lecture Series on 4/14 from 12 - 1, this would be a really informative session for your students to hear about Carlos' personal artwork as well as previous community partnerships, all dealing with animation.
Carlos will also be serving as a Teaching Artist for our Free Family Program on 4/18 from 12 - 3pm. This will be a chance for community members to come and take part in a cut-paper animation project first hand.
We are looking for participants and volunteers to help with all of these events. If you would like any more information on them to bring to your students just let me know. If you have any other thoughts on how you would like your students to engage in this project please let me know. We are thrilled about the opportunity to have a closer relationship to the University of Delaware and its students.
