About the Event
The Prodigy Cultural Arts Program uses visual and performing arts to help young people develop life skills, including communication, leadership, problem-solving, anger management, and goal setting. Classes are led by professional artists who also serve as mentors. Through art, participants cultivate self-confidence, acquire the ability to highlight their skills and foster lifelong positive habits for future success. The Prodigy Arts program currently serves youth from Osceola Arts and Eastlake Elementary. It is a digital media program with a primary focus on photography and video editing. The instructor, local teaching artist Marlon Gonzalez, is passionate about instilling digital media skills to facilitate a broader range of expression through the arts.
This body of work is the culmination of assignments given to students ranging from elementary to high school age. Throughout the course, students were instructed in basic camera functions and composition techniques. It is truly remarkable that these achievements have been accomplished within a relatively short timeline. Marlon Gonzalez is a seasoned photographer, educator, and site manager at the Osceola Arts / Prodigy multicultural arts program.
Works on display in the Tompkins Gallery from November 15 through December 17. A free art reception will be held on Saturday, December 2 from 1pm to 3pm. Osceola Arts exhibitions are always free and open to the public. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
