|3rd Street Youth Arts Windscreens|
2003 – 2005
For this two-part project, I combined my skills as an art educator and artist/designer. I collaborated with children who live in San Francisco’s Bayview/Hunter’s Point and Potrero Hill neighborhoods to create permanent windscreens for new transit shelters along San Francisco’s Third Street corridor.
Working with three art teachers, I coordinated a series of workshops for these children in which they generated images for the project. The workshops, focused on process as well as product, providing the children a structured art curriculum exploring the basic visual elements of art and graphic design and lessons in self-expression. They explored their subjects through photography and drawing. Their completed designs convey stories of the neighborhood, preserving a cultural history in the act of making.
