Add to Calendar 14-07-2013 14-07-2013 15 The Fruity Pop Workshop The Fruity Pop Workshop is a pop-up class in which children learn how to make healthy sodas with fruit available at their local farmers market. The Fruity Pop Workshop roams New York City, popping up at farmers markets and other public spaces in Iow- and moderate-income areas, injecting a space for creative play and learning. Children (aged 4-11) and parents are invited to join a team of artists, educators, and other volunteers for 20 minutes of hands-on, delicious fun. The Fruity Pop Workshop was created in collaboration with artist Tattfoo Tan whose “Nature Matching System Placemat” (NMSP) is incorporated into each workshop. (This item is currently for sale at MoMA Design Stores in Manhattan.) The colors on the NMSP — derived from Tan’s photographs of farmers market produce — serve as a reminder to consume our daily dose of color. “The intense colors might even be called nature’s nutrition labels,” says the artist. By way of the NMSP, we teach children about nutrition as well as some basic building blocks of art such as color and texture. At the end of each workshop, participating children receive a small jar of fruit soda along with a recipe card and beverage stand tips. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=142035 Down to Earth Farmers Market in Cooper Park true DD/MM/YYYY
