I'd like to share with other art educators who are involved in creating
public art installations with youth.
I am currently involved with another public art project this summer,
building a stained glass installation for a local community center that
serves the performing arts.
I am working with 10 students, ages 14-21. The windows are pretty
sizeable, 2 (4' x 7' ). The students have created all the design
work... we are doing a 'homage to Matisse' and our 'cartoons' are based
from the students' cut outs (cut and paste collage).
Are there some others out there working on public art projects with
students? I find it very exciting! What kinds of things have others
done? Successes? Challenges?
