“Encounter” is a program resource guide based on New Urban Arts’ Summer 2010 Art Inquiry with artist mentors Jane Androski and Alice Costas as well as artist/scholar in residence Laurencia Strauss.

This publication is one of a series produced annually. The program model reflects research from the National Summer Learning Association, which describes that the most effective summer learning environments allow students “freedom to digress from a prescribed curriculum” through project based learning and encourages sustained in-depth exploration of one theme.
We hope you find this resource guide useful in sparking new ideas for your own creative practice, individually, collaboratively or even in the classroom. The publication’s format allows readers to adapt, combine or alter the activities to your liking to best meet the needs of your specific environment.
