We’d like to invite you to our Eye on Design Community Project Workday. Our Teaching Artist, Betty Rosen is coordinating a community project workday where we invite community members to help us finish our Eye on Design mosaic. Help us place tile on mesh, cut tile, and sort tile for our next projects! All ages welcome!
Eye on Design is a 15-week public art education program for third-grade students that encourages civic involvement, critical thinking, and creative problem-solving through a customized residency program. Eye on Design guides students through the same process a public artist follows to develop a public art concept and seek an art commission. By the end of the 15 weeks, students have studied various forms of public art, researched their surrounding neighborhood and created a public art piece for their school. Eye on Design’s interdisciplinary approach incorporates language arts, history/social science and the visual arts. Students apply their learning to solve “real- life” problems and must actively utilize art theory, reading, writing, speaking, and math skills through the work they do. Eye on Design is a substantive and intricate program that empowers students to create positive change in their own community.
