Community Art Education > Carrboro Arts Center: Home and Community

During this two week residency at the Arts Center in Carrboro, NC, students K-5 explored themes of home and community. Youth individually contemplated their personal meanings of home through poetry and drawings. Eventually, all of the individual home drawings were combined into a collaborative collage. As we created the work together, we discussed the meaning of community. The large-scale collage is be paired with an online SoundCloud playlist consisting of all the participants' recorded poems describing the diverse elements that make up our collective artwork.
