Power Kids: Secret Ears

December 17, 2017

These FREE arts workshops for children ages 7-12 begin with a tour of the gallery and conclude with an art activity, inspired by the ideas behind the current exhibition. Tours and workshops are led by Amanda Foulds, Power Kids Family Programs Coordinator and assisted by Erica Cristobal, Power Kids Teaching Assistant. In this workshop we will consider the use of translation and miscommunication in Amalia Pica’s exhibition 'ears to speak of.' We will begin with a brief discussion about language, sound and the history of secret codes. Then, we will construct our own cipher wheels using paper, watercolour and ink. You can write your own coded letters and send them to a friend.
