¿Cómo Vives? is a twice annual workshop that is part of Artpace’s Art Elements education initiative. With each ¿Cómo Vives? students from an area organization engage in a six-week interaction with an Artpace exhibition, reflecting on the artist’s chosen themes, media, and process.

Young Residents of the San Antonio Children’s Shelter and active adult residents of Morningside Ministries participated in ¿Cómo Vives? workshops on Tuesday afternoons this summer. Residents from each facility created works of art in response to the 12.2 Hudson Show(Room) Exhibition New Works Now.

This video presents a compilation of digital self portraits, photographs, and voice recordings made by the eleven children from the San Antonio Children's Shelter who participated in ¿Cómo Vives?. Inspired by the work by 12.2 Hudson (Show)Room and 02.3 International Artist-in-Residence artist Juan Miguel Ramos, Children’s shelter residents drew self portraits and colored them digitally in Photoshop, to layer over photographs they took of the yard and playgrounds around their campus. On July 17, 2012 Juan Miguel Ramos visited the Children’s Shelter to lead students in hands-on Photoshop lessons; the students were thrilled to meet and work with the artist and asked for his autograph. Children also created voice-over recordings to add to their digital renderings, stating their name, age, and what they like about art.
