The workshop, "Destruction, Construction and Imagination: The Art of Creativity," is the brainchild of Dr. Brandon Davison-Tracy, a painter with a studio at eventgallery who is also a pediatrician (his pediatric practice is sponsoring the workshop, is why it's free), who will use the time to let the kids brush, drip and splatter while engaging them in a conversation about the nature of creativity, art and why it's important.
It's a tie in to the exhibit on display this month at eventgallery, which is called, naturally, Play: Conversations about Creativity, a group show of three artists. During this month, all those artists are hosting workshops about the nature of their crafts -- the next workshop on November 6, for example, is devoted to "The Art of Photoshop" and hosted by Catherine M. Dutcher, a digital photography artist who is also on display.
The focus of tomorrow's workshop, though, is painting -- specifically on small, cubic canvasses, which, after they're done, will be mounted as a grid on an eventgallery wall as part of the exhibit. Because we all know half the fun of parenting is the bragging rights.
Eventgallery is located right in the heart of it at 910 Santa Fe Drive. Again, the workshop is free, but you're going to have to call in advance to reserve a spot, because space is limited. Here's that number: 303-815-1779.
