IN HOUSE workshops
"I wish we had more of this at school, we had so much fun."
after school clubs
In our workshops we wear comfy gear and we feel safe to express ourselves. We play, we do drama and we explore scientific ideas. And of course, we have fun.
We don't have a specific space that we run our workshops. It could be a school, a museum or a coffee shop. We need space to move around and wooden floors to feel cosy and comfortable.
Each workshop is different and its duration depends on the age of the participants, the setting and the content. Most of our workshops last about 2 hours.
Our workshops are designed with love and knowledge of each age group. We don't have a specific age range, it can be preK students or a group of adults.
But WHY Public Art?
Well, we believe in the power of Public Art.
Public Art is out there for you twenty-four seven. You may find it while you are walking back home from a hard day at work, you may use it as a shelter when it is raining, you may notice it on your first date or even be annoyed from all these kids playing around it.
But this is Public Art. It is Public; that means everyone is welcome to make connections and create memories. There are no tickets or lines. It is out there. For free. Twenty-four seven.
Public Art means that everyone is welcome to just stop at some point and think. Because this is what Public Art is about -to initiate a dialogue, first and foremost with ourselves and then with the rest of the Cosmos.
We are here to show you how…
UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN,
SCHOOL OF EDUCATION
Education students training
In this workshop we worked with the Art Museum of the University of Michigan. We did a workshop for teachers and future teachers in order to share with them the idea of SciArt storytelling through Drama.
Art, Science and Drama can be an educational vehicle in the classroom or in a school visit at a museum.
Do you think you know everything about Chicago?
Do you think Art is boring? It doesn't make sense sometimes, right? Do you think drama is for kindergarteners? Do you think Science is for the smart ones?
NYAT is for you, then!
NOT YOUR AVERAGE TOUR
NOT YOUR AVERAGE TOUR is an interactive, SciArt experience that blends Public Art, Science and the participants’ own story -pretty much NOT YOUR AVERAGE TOUR.
NOT YOUR AVERAGE TOUR is a 90min participatory walk in Chicago, like no other. During the NYAT you will see some of the most popular works of Public Art in the Loop, learn about the stories behind them, make connections with the science of the cosmos and explore their relationship with *your* story. Yes, YOUR story!
Expect to walk, laugh, move around, have fun (AND WE MEAN IT)
NOT YOUR AVERAGE TOUR aims to stimulate the participants to create connections with works of Public Art and think about the boundaries between Art, Science and our lives.
