Katonah Museum of Art and Jacob Burns Media Arts Lab team-up for a Digital Portrait Workshop for Teens and Tweens. "Here and There Workshops for Teens" is a day-long program for teenagers.
It begins at the Katonah Museum of Art (KMA), where students will work with artist Anne-Marie McIntyre, drawing faces from the KMA current exhibition, "Eye to I," paying close attention to light, shadow, and facial expressions.
At the mid-way break, everyone will take the train to Pleasantville (with KMA and JBFC staff members) for a hands-on project in the Jacob Burns Film Center's Media Arts Lab, where they will explore how filmmakers use lighting and camera techniques to draw out the personality and emotions of their subjects.
Registration fee includes train ticket. Pre-paid registration required. Participants must commit to the entire day and bring their own lunch. To register, go to burnsfilmcenter.org/education, or call 914-773-7663, x8. Times: 10am-12pm at the KMA; 1:30-3:30pm at the Burns Media Arts Lab.
