3D4D by CSI is presenting its first in person public workshop, "Latin American Tales: The Magic of Storytelling and Art", Sunday July 25th. The workshop, hosted by artist/curator Pia Cruzalegui and Chicago author Micheal Zapata, focuses on the cultural and historical importance of storytelling through hands-on art making activities.
The culture of Latin American countries has been cultivated and continues through folktales. 3D4D Director, Pia Cruzalegui has adapted a series of ancient legends for a young audience. The selected tales continue to be transmitted from one generation to the next to promote tradition and culture.
In this workshop, young artists will experience a Latin American tale, a presentation by author, Michael Zapata, on the importance of stories with a little history on Incan and Mayan storytelling. Then participants will make a collaborative story with Michael Zapata and create a mixed media artwork related to their story with Pia Cruzalegui.
Parents are welcome. A portion of workshop proceeds benefits Casa Central.
