|Arch + Design Education|
The Center's Architecture and Design Education program will be working in tandem with the Fabric Workshop and Museum (FWM) when Portside Art Center's summer students visit on August 4th to participate in two different workshops. FWM’s project is "Patterns and Places" and ADE’s project is "Spaces and Places: building a city block." Here students learn how fundamental design elements can be used to help define the look and feel of a neighborhood helping them to develop, reasoning, creative, imaginative, and problem-solving skills.
Inspired by the artist Romare Bearden’s collage, The Block, students will recreate artistic street and cityscape facades collaging various materials such as paper cloth or photographs, pictures from magazines, and other found objects to create their own building. The student’s buildings will then be assembled side by side to compose a street block.
