HANDS-ON HOUSTON: CASTING PENDANTS WITH EAN ESCOTO

Join current resident artist and metalsmith Ean Escoto for mold making and plaster casting.

Choose from a variety of objects to create textures and impressions for your mold, and cast a wearable plaster pendent.  Visit Ean’s studio to discover how he uses this technique in his own wearable works. Once your piece has dried, pop it out of the mold, and see the exciting results!  Hang your pendant on a string to wear as a necklace or hang as an ornament.

Note: Please allow 20 minutes to complete this activity and 15 minutes for the project to dry. The activity will take place indoors and is on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last.

HANDS-ON HOUSTON is a free drop-in event held the first Saturday of every month. Each month, a teaching artist demonstrates a craft related to the current exhibitions. Families and children of all ages are welcome to come any time between 11 AM and 3 PM and participate in a 15 – 20 minute activity. Materials are provided. This program supports HCCC’s mission to advance education about the process, product, and history of craft.

Park-SmART Precinct One - Arts & Culture Forum

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all.

Commissioner Rodney Ellis and Public Art and Design Director Reginald Adams from Harris County Precinct One invite you to:

Park-SmART Precinct One Arts & Culture Forum, an evening of conversation and drinks to celebrate the role of artists and the arts in creating compelling, welcoming, beautiful parks and open space for all. 

Park-SmART Precinct One is part of a larger effort, Park-Smart Precinct One, through which the Precinct is partnering with The Trust for Public Land, Houston Parks Board, and Asakura Robinson on an ambitious plan to build community resilience by increasing equitable access to parks and trails. 

Arts and cultural engagement are essential to creating parks and greenways that are truly accessible and welcoming—parks and greenways that reflect the histories, identities, and aspirations of local residents. We want artists to be active voices in the shaping the plan and in helping us determine how funding, partnerships, and programming can help make art a core asset in Precinct One’s parks. 

As members of our vibrant local arts community, we hope that you will come share your ideas as you enjoy a drink on us!

As part of this event we will be asking:
• What role can artists play in increasing equity and community resilience in Precinct One?
• What kinds of parks-based arts and cultural programming and engagement are already happening locally?
• What are the specific places and contexts, in parks and the public realm, where can artists contribute more?
• What can the Precinct do to create more opportunities for artists to share their ideas and work in parks and open space?

Please spread the word and we hope to see you there!

Salsa Grande Dance Workshop


Salsa Grande with Michael Whitmire

Thursday, June 14 | 7:00 PM-9:00 PM
Salsa Grande is designed for people who have little or no Salsa dancing experience, but are enthusiastic about learning something new and/or refining what you may already know. You will be taught dance steps that can be used in any social setting where Salsa music is played.

The instructor will emphasize understanding the music and being able to coordinate your body movement with the music, which are the hallmarks of any good dancer. Stay for 30 minutes after the class to practice the steps and socialize with friends.

$10 pre-registered online | $15 at the door

Michael Whitmire is the founder, choreographer, and director of the SALSA GRANDE dance program, based in Houston.  He is known as "the Dancing Lawyer" among the local Salsa-dancing community, because his day job is indeed as a licensed attorney and adjunct law professor -- yet for the past 11 years, Michael has spent much of his spare time teaching people in the Houston area how to dance to Salsa music.  He has performed over 80 times in Texas, including onstage at the Wortham Center, Discovery Green, the International Festival, and several appearances on Houston's network television affiliates.  Michael has also performed twice in California and won a dance contest in Miami, Florida.  Michael's greatest joy is teaching Salsa dancing to others, so that they can experience the same fun he has had since learning his first steps almost 25 years ago.
