WHAT COLOR IS YOUR DRAGON?: STORIES AND ART FOR CHILDREN EXPLORING VARIETY
Saturday July 30, at noon, artist and storyteller Joy Corcoran will engage children in the art of storytelling and the stories we can find in art. “Feeding Your Dragon” uses fantasy to explore human variation through the use of sight, sound, touch, and imagination. Joy will encourage children to have conversation about disability as difference, and how to feed the dragon we call fear inside of all of us. Children will experience a variety of communication styles, including American Sign Language (ASL) and braille. Children will be allowed to touch Joy’s fabric sculpture called Shared Vision — a blind goddess, Iris, and her seeing-eye dragon, Aurora. This is a part of A Somewhat Secret Place: Disability and Art which takes place at PRESENTspace Gallery at 939 NW Glisan.
Children accompanied by an adult are welcome. Cookies and tea and soy, rice and almond milks will be served.
