Arte Motu Junior: Public Art by the Kids

ARTE MOTU Junior welcomes kids from 6 to 12 years old.

Through Arte Motu Junior, kids will familiarize with the concept of public art, and will create art for the public space of the coastside, focusing mostly on 3D art and art suited for outdoor. There will be 2-3 projects per year. Projects are mostly proposed by kids, and guided by 1-2 Arte Motu artist volunteers. Each project will include a 1 to 2 days workshop. Every Arte Motu Junior member is welcome to submit their ideas for projects.

ARTE MOTU Junior members are invited to submit their art for art exhibits, explore gallery possibilities, produce their own art merchandise (such as prints, postcards, etc.) to be sold at Arte Motu events. Arte Motu Junior members will decide which school or cause will benefit 25% of sales.

ARTE MOTU Junior will meet on November 4th, 2011, at the Pigeon Point Fog House, from 3:30 to 5:30 pm.
At this event kids will:
- attend a small presentation of the first project, called "Prayer Stones", proposed by Frances Olive Markham, 4th grader at Pacific Elementary School in Davenport, CA
- execute 1 quick art project
- schedule the workshops to finish the project by deadline.

If your kid decides to participate to this project, the fee will be $30 per kid (20% discount for more than one kid per family) payable at the event by cash or check. The fee includes 2 workshops, materials and tuition, exhibit organization, press release, and opening.

THE EVENT IS RSVP ONLY. Please, reply if you and your kid(s) will participate by October 28th through email or by calling Rosanna at 650-619-1593.
