In the ‘Claim It!’ project at YouthCity, the younger students have been working on developing their claims. A claim can range from personal to entirely external, from silly to serious. By examining other community members’ claims from various public events from the past several months, students are developing a deeper understanding of what it means to claim a space.
This week, we will examine the different spaces at Sorenson Unity Center that could potentially be home to the student’s ideas for a public artwork based on the claims we develop together. We will also work on claiming one word and create a zentangle design to showcase this word, with an emphasis on pattern, shape and craftsmanship.
