Introducing: Flick Up!
A Free Digital Imagery Workshop on Zoom
to Guide Teens Creatively To Express Themselves
April 20, 21 & 23rd 2pm – 4pm
In conjunction with its Creative Outlets youth program, the Cape Cod Museum of Art (CCMoA) is pleased to offer “Flick Up!”–aFree Digital Imagery Workshop on Zoom for all Cape Cod teens ages 12-14. “Flick Up!” is a community outreach program that guides participants to transform digital photographs into creative works that tell a story. An innovative mobile app provided by project collaborator Expressive Digital Imagery(EDI) Institute allows teens to personalize ordinary photographs into thought-provoking new digital photos and text. These images will then be shared in groups. IPads and apps are provided to each student at no cost.Each of the three sessions will focus on different topics related to creative self-expression, and the images will support discussion and engagement.EDI is used in health organizations state-wide, including the Dana Farber Cancer Institute and McLean Hospital, as well as locally at Gosnold.
Now in its fourth year, CCMoA’sCreative Outlets: Finding Your Voice Through Arts has joined with the Wellfleet, and Eastham Recreation Departments, and EDI to offer these workshops during school spring break. Zoom workshops are in high demand by parents and caregivers when outside activities for teens are limited. Flick Up! is generously funded by the Edward Bangs Kelley and Eiiza Kelley Foundation.
Creative Outlets successfully ran Flick Up! during winter break with the Brewster and Mashpee Recreation Departments. The hope is that eventually funds will be found to expand Flick Up! to all 13 of the Cape’s recreation departments. CCMoA’sCreative Outlets has put together a team of professionals committed to increasing connections between young people and caring adults by using the healing powers of visual imagery. Flick Up! is a cutting-edge approach that does just that.
