How can designing sustainable public art maintain skills for future employment?

We’d hoped to create a public art work that would be visible to the school and to the surrounding community in Spring 2020.

After the pandemic required school closure, we planned for remote collaboration and shifted to a project exploring students’ strengths and skills for life after school with a project that involved individualized, multi-media art pieces.

Unfortunately our school policies kept us from being able to meet with our teaching artist via remote platforms.

It is our hope that we will be able to work through this project for the coming school year.
