Together We'll Make It

The Student Union and Intercultural Center, the Office of Student Life, and colleagues from the Art Department would like to invite you to join us as we build community while building new skills and learning new things. The idea for this event came together as we brainstormed how art is created during a global pandemic, social distancing, lockdowns, and quarantines. Our conversation led us to explore the concept of "art as social practice," an art medium focusing on engagement through human interaction and social discourse.  

With that, I invite you all to join our "Together We'll Make It" series where you are invited to both demonstrate your talents and/or join in and learn something new. All activities are open to beginners for all KCC students, faculty, staff, and alumni.   

We will be piloting the concept on two dates this winter session as we work to fill up our weekly schedule with your talents for the Spring semester.

Thaumatrope

Led by Prof. Tommy Mintz, Art

A thaumatrope is an optical toy made from a disk with a picture on each side attached to two pieces of string. Twirling the string merges the two images together. 

Materials needed: Pen or pencil, index cards or paper, string. 

 We'd love you to help showcase your skills - this can go beyond your disciplines - some examples include how to chop an onion, how to crochet, perfect beard care, top 5 facts to know about plant maintenance, proper form for a pushup, etc., The demonstrations should be 15 minutes long and allow time for the audience to practice and ask questions.
