Joe Sneed, Jacob Elias and Misha Capecchi, Portland-based artists, have organized a community art project for youth from Da Vinci Middle School and 100th Monkey Studio. The project consists of a series of creative workshops that culminate with the youth group collaborating with residents at Dignity Village (www.dignityvillage.org) on creating a greenhouse out of recycled materials. We will work with the youth group on three initial week long workshops that guide them toward their project at Dignity Village. In the workshops the participants will learn art techniques related to gardening and sustainable design. Local organizations and artists have volunteered to participate in the workshops, including SCRAP, Growing Gardens and Local Victory. They will supplement our teaching by providing the youth group with demonstrations, materials and experience in active community engagement, as well as 4 to 1 ratio for students to artists. To conclude the project, exhibitions documenting the creative process will be held at 100th Monkey gallery and/or Da Vinci Middle School.
