New This June! Transformative Action Project's Guest Artist Series Scroll down to lean about our June workshops!!

TAP is excited to begin offering online, interactive workshops. Our partners this June are three accomplished and socially responsible visual artists who live and/or work in Boston: Cagen Luse, Larry Pierce and Anthony Peyton Young. All are teaching artists who have a commitment to bringing the transformative power of art to those who have experienced the health disparities associated with poverty, racial inequities and exposure to violence.

Stop-Motion Animation Workshop

with Cagen Luse

During the pandemic more time at home has led to some great creative projects. Here is one we think is a lot of fun-- learn a simple technique to create fun stop-motion animations using a stop-motion animation cell phone app.

Materials: Download app and get ready for a creative fun activity. Have some Legos or other toys or objects at hand to begin your project. *We will send you information about the app in advance of the class, once you've registered.

Portrait Drawing with Anthony Peyton Young

In my portraiture workshop we will spend time learning the basic measurements, breaking down the form, and adding value to create a realistic portrait.
