Moonshot Studio: Drop-in Activity Space for Families

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Go for hands-on exploration in our new Moonshot Studio, where activities will be running throughout the festival for visitors of all ages to spend time delving into various art forms, exploring stories and themes from the Center’s stages, and creating their own works of art.

Today in the Moonshot Studio:
MoKC: Art Studio
Learn to draw just like Mo Willems! Here you can sketch his characters—or make up your own—at large drawing tables. Use light tables to practice tracing your favorite characters. See how simple shapes can be assembled to create expressive characters!

MoKC: It’s a Mo-A-Trope!
Make your favorite Mo characters squawk, jump and dance in a hand-made Mo-A-Trope (it’s a zoetrope with Mo in it!). Using early hand-made technology called zoetropes, learn how simple drawings can come to life with the simple spin of a wheel.

JFK Ideals: Poetry & Pennants
Explore the words and ideals of JFK through poetry and visual art. Transform the words of John F. Kennedy into an original poem. Then use your poem to create a pennant that celebrates your ideals and puts them on display.

Mixmaster Station
Curated by Marvin and Brian Quijada (composer and playwright, respectively, of Kid Prince & Pablo), use the Mixmaster Station to create your own livelooped mixes using sounds, rhythms, and beats, and combining genres like trap, reggaeton, swing, and original music from Marvin and Brian.

Analog: Install - Interactive Dance and Technology Experience
Explore an interactive installation designed to demystify the experience of watching a contemporary dance performance. Turn, bend, and jump to create virtual choreography generated from your own movements and projected in real-time through motion-tracking technology.
