Taking inspiration from the current Diego Rivera: Murals for The Museum of Modern Art exhibition, the teens enrolled in this fall’s ¡Muralistas! Large-Scale Painting from Around the World workshop have been exploring the power and the excitement of creating enormous public art.
When we polled teens last year to find out what new In the Making classes they were most interested in seeing on the schedule this fall, the most interesting suggestion that we received was that of creating a class with no set curriculum, rules, or theme.
For this season of In the Making, as part of our CLICK@MoMA digital media workshops for teens, we brought in the guys from the indie video game collective Babycastles to run a 10-week workshop on the amazing world of interactive technology, consoles, and video games
