Katonah Museum of Art


Tween, Teen


Event description: 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.

About Katonah Museum of Art

The Katonah Museum of Art, through innovative exhibition and education programs, promotes the understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts for diverse audiences. The Museum presents exhibitions that explore ideas about art, culture and society -- past and present.

The Katonah Museum of Art originates three to four exhibitions annually, covering a broad range of art and humanities topics. From the beginning, the KMA was committed to presenting exceptional art from all cultures and time periods. The founders’ decision to be a non-collecting institution resulted in a dynamic and flexible exhibition program, which remains one of the most distinctive features of the KMA. The KMA offers lectures, films, workshops, concerts and other events for a general audience; and presents innovative and substantive programs for over 100 member schools.
