At the end of January, Design Your Neighborhood began a three month long winter session in the South Park Community Center. The Seattle Art Museum and Seattle Parks and Recreation are excited to work with the program’s talented teaching artist, Satpreet Kahlon, and nine amazing individuals from across the Seattle area as we all come together to explore visual art, design, and how both of these things can create positive community change!
This session, the youth will think critically about the teen room in South Park and what they can do to create a space they can be comfortable in, respected in, and safe in. While everyone gets acquainted they will partake in various art activities, learn valuable lessons about art and design, and get exclusive tours on future field trips. There’s a bunch to look forward to and a lot to get done, so let’s get started!
Learning Objective: What is design? Form vs. Function
