City-As-School is an alternative public transfer High School in the heart of the West Village which prides itself on experiential programming that focuses on learning by doing. Internship Department Head Melissa Birnbaum has worked with Art in Your Space to design a project-based curriculum that awards their students credit in science, art, and technology. We are hoping that this innovative collaboration will pave the way towards more maker centric-work with City-As for years to come.
Digital Ready has graciously provided our initial funding for the pilot run of the Art in Your Space program. Digital Ready is an intensive professional development program designed to help participating NYC public high schools use technology and student-centered learning to improve their students’ readiness for college and careers. We look forward to partnering with them on future iterations of this project.
Art In Your Space is thrilled to be partnering with Eyebeam, a non-profit art and technology center dedicated to exposing broad and diverse audiences to new technologies and media arts, while simultaneously establishing and demonstrating new media as a significant genre of cultural production. Students meet with Artists in Residence and are spending several days in the shop and computer lab building out their project.
