"Creating New Traditions, One Cup at a Time" - First Cup Painting Workshop with C.K. Itamura

1/15/2020 from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM PT

Teatime is reinvented as a new tradition, with tea, treats, and a twist. This participatory social practice project offers visitors the opportunity to sit and sip tea with the artist, enjoy light snacks, reflect on the idea of creating new traditions, and paint hand-formed paper tea cups that will later become part of a large installation consisting of over ten thousand pieces painted by hundreds of people over the course of multiple years.

In her project, s+toryprobl=m :: 156, artist C.K. Itamura uses the sharing of tea, time, and the simple act of painting hand-formed paper teacups as a catalyst to explore ways that every person can create simple rituals, using simple tools and materials, to begin to mend communities, families, and themselves in an era where humans are becoming ever disconnected and distant from each other.

s+oryprobl=m :: 156 posits one question and provides one possible solution:
“What can I do with: the weight of my entire being; the tools I know how to use; the materials at my disposal; to practice meaningful rituals and positive, thoughtful communication, while creating artifacts of time and intention well spent in the company of others?”

Painting workshop is recommended for adults and is free with admission. Space is limited to 16 participants. Pre-registration is required. This workshop repeats on Saturday, January 25th.
