One class is working with sculptor, Tim Kaulen, to create a large-scale structure for a local playground. Kaulen works with found and salvaged material including discarded vinyl sheets, back-lit gas station placards and old billboards.
Another class created quilted banners and totem poles to serve as gateways to a children's garden in the inner city.
As part of the design process, each young artist creates a journal to capture ideas and artifacts that may inspire them. A collaborative design process involved determining the themes, interviewing neighbors and refining details of the sculpture.
The final pieces were built from large recycled signs.
