Roman Susan Art Gallery at 1224 w. Loyola is hosting an interactive art project involving kids, drawing and video. This is a city wide event and Rogers Park will be the first neighborhood to create a film composed of evolving children's art. Neighbors are invited to participate in the public drawing. Paper will cover the rooms. So there will be plenty of space to express yourself. Using stop frame video (as above) the entire process will be videotaped and collated into one video. Not sure if their is an age restriction on the drawing.
- Public Drawing: October 6 - October 20
- Monday-Friday 3 pm to 6 pm | Weekends 12pm to 4 pm
- Gallery Hours: October 23 - 25 from 3 pm to 6 pm
- Closing Event: October 25 from 7 pm to 9 pm
"Siobhan Leonard's art education career began teaching film to children at a summer camp. As an experiment, she implemented stop-motion animation into the curriculum. The simple role of drawing was key as students created pictures, frame by frame, and assembled the many images into a short film. This experiment made Leonard realize just how much freedom there is in drawing and how uniquely different each person draws. "
