New Urban Arts has published a new resource guide for educators, artists and young people that details curriculum from a thematic based summer arts program for high school students. The annual Summer Art Inquiry at New Urban Arts invites scholars, artists and high school students to spend July and August collectively exploring a common theme from a multi-disciplinary standpoint including research, art-making, creative writing and personal inquiry. Themes change each summer and explore the human experience as it intersects with creative practice. This summer’s theme was PLACEMAKING, including explorations of home.
The publication’s format allows readers to adapt activities from our Summer Art Inquiry into any educational environment or individual artist’s creative practice.
The Program Resource Guide from the 2011 Art Inquiry is available for purchase online at cost value. The 80 page paperback book (7.44″ x 9.68″) with saddle-stitch binding and full-color interior ink costs $21.50. To buy a copy of the book, visit our Lulu store here.
The resource guide can be downloaded at no cost from our website, www.newurbanarts.org
