Justice Club: Zine making workshop for kids and families
Communication's Justice Club will be joining forces with Solarpunk Surf Club to experience the current exhibition, Graen Room, in the 3rd floor gallery. Justice Club is a service-learning art project for elementary school-aged artists who want to empower others by expressing themselves. We will provide supplies and guidance for kids to create collage pages that illustrate who they are as art-makers and young members of the community.
The current installation is Grean Room - an exhibition by Solarpunk Surf Club. ""Græn R∞m is a public living room for conviviality and utopian (re)creation. Guests are invited to read, rest, play, and socialize in a cozy, communal environment.""
