Back by popular demand! When we look at art, we make a connection with it. Learn to capture this rich experience by writing and producing a podcast about your own response to a work of art. In the first session, we will engage in guided looking, personal reflection, and small group discussion about works of art. Using these strategies, you will then focus individually on a work of your choice. This deep looking and thinking will provide content for your podcast.

During the second session, hosted at WHYY, you will learn to employ audio storytelling skills as you turn your response into an engaging podcast. Using readily available technology, you will learn basic recording and sound editing techniques, as well as strategies to use these techniques in your classroom.

*This is a two-part workshop, on two consecutive Saturdays. You must attend both days to receive professional development credit.

Back by popular demand! When we look at art, we make a connection with it. Learn to capture this rich experience by writing and producing a podcast about your own response to a work of art. In the first session, we will engage in guided looking, personal reflection, and small group discussion about works of art. Using these strategies, you will then focus individually on a work of your choice. This deep looking and thinking will provide content for your podcast.

During the second session, hosted at WHYY, you will learn to employ audio storytelling skills as you turn your response into an engaging podcast. Using readily available technology, you will learn basic recording and sound editing techniques, as well as strategies to use these techniques in your classroom.

*This is a two-part workshop, on two consecutive Saturdays. You must attend both days to receive professional development credit.

This new work reconstructs the oratorio of Joseph Haydn’s "The Creation" (1796-98), which is based on the Book of Genesis and John Milton’s epic poem "Paradise Lost" (1667). Drawing from a tradition of epic poetry by opening in medias res, the artists subject The Creation to a series of reversals, inversions, and interruptions. These interventions on the original musical score are mirrored by the singers’ physical movements throughout the space, poetically suggesting a reconsideration of time and the origins of humankind.

Location: Van Pelt Auditorium

Join host Robert Buscher, Festival Director of the Philadelphia Asian American Film Festival, for a Japanese film that compliments Ink and Gold: Art of the Kano.

Directed by Goro Miyazaki, son of world-renowned animator Hayao Miyazaki, this feature-length anime is a nostalgic, coming-of-age story about a group of teens who work together to save their school clubhouse from being demolished. Set in mid-1960s Yokohama, this film beautifully captures urban Japan during the postwar reconstruction period while exploring memories of loss and longing in the aftermath of war. The continuity in storytelling and engrossing animation style shared between father and son reflect an interesting parallel to the apprenticeship system of the Kano School.
