Join us for a series of free creative workshops presented by Columbia University’s Arts Initiative and Miller Theatre. Flex your creative muscles as you paint, craft, sew, and papier-mâché to create magnificent mobile sculptures and large-scale puppets. Workshops are open to all and no experience is needed—-just bring your ideas and imagination. Work alongside neighbors from Harlem, Morningside Heights, the Upper West Side, and beyond. Inspired by the theme, “The Imagined City,” workshops will use art to explore concepts of urban planning and development in the heart of one of the city’s most diverse neighborhoods. At the end of the week, your creations will make their debut in the first annual Morningside Lights procession, an illuminated parade around Morningside Park and through the Columbia campus.
Workshops will be held on Saturday & Sunday, September 22 & 23, from noon to 6 p.m., and on Monday-Friday, September 24-28, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
