Children and youth will dive deep into their imaginations at DIGI-ART, a fun-filled afternoon of hands-on workshops guaranteed to stimulate creativity and expand artistic horizons.

Presented by the Powell Street Festival Society and the Vancouver Japanese Language School, DIGI-ART invites kids ages 4 to 12 to learn new skills and express themselves artistically using digital technology—with practicing Japanese Canadian artists as their instructors.

DIGI-ART features the following workshops:

-Video Workshop with Makiko Yoshii (12:30-2:00 pm)
Students will make a stop-motion video using a Mac laptop and a video camera; a DVD of the final product will be provided as a take-home keepsake.

-Learn to Photograph like a Pro! with Yoshinori Tanaka (12:30-2:00pm)
Students will learn how to take beautiful portrait photographs with their digital cameras.

-Para para Manga! with Kazuho Yamamoto (2:30-4:00pm)
Students will develop a storyboard and create a flipbook.

-Create and Design your own Plush Toy/Tote Bag with Makiko Yoshii (2:30-4:00pm)
Students will design, draw, and sew a fashionable tote or an adorable plush toy, learning valuable skills in Adobe Photoshop (including toolbox, text, and layers) while they’re at it.
