Empathy Makers: Making for Change
Saturday, May 2, 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
#LadyMaker: Christa Flores
Every year approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide. Of those, approximately 2.7 million shelter animals are adopted each year (1.4 million dogs and 1.3 million cats). In this class you will use art, technology and science to address this real world problem. Learn about a real animal ready for adoption at a local shelter in Santa Clara. Make a pet portrait using tracing techniques and paper electrical circuits to light up your animal’s name. All portraits will be donated back to your animal’s shelter, put on display and then given to families or friends to take home with their newly adopted family member.
Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 18th, you may register online at https://makeher-may02.eventbrite.com.
Make-HER workshops are open to girls aged 8 – 12 and their mothers (or other adult female mentors). Our talented #LadyMaker educators have designed content specifically for this age group. Therefore the workshops are not appropriate for those under age eight, including younger siblings. You may cancel up to 48 hours in advance, but those who do not show without cancellation will be prevented from registering for subsequent Make-HER workshops. Each workshop requires a separate registration. Each registration reserves spots for both you and your daughter.
