Students in our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programs across Detroit are challenged to think outside the box and explore new ideas. Students in this class covered everything from the science of mixing colors to creating 3-D characters that were animated and transformed into video shorts.

This summer, we employed 11 students through Detroit’s Summer Youth Employment program to work with CAP Faculty member, Joye Ofei, in Brightmoor. As you can see, they’ve cleaned up the area and gotten a great start on the mural portion of their project.
Stay tuned for more updates and pictures of their progress!
Join us Thursday, July 18th from 2:30-4pm in celebration of what our students in the Detroit Neighborhood Arts Workshop Summer Art Intensive program accomplished!
Please join us for another youth art exhibition this Thursday — this time, in Brightmoor!

The SURA Arts Academy from the Arab American National Museum toured Dearborn City Hall to give the students an opportunity to not only see the facility, but interview members of the staff about what their role is in keeping things running smoothly in the city. Some of the students’ photographs are featured in this news program. Officers are sworn in at the Dearborn Police Department.
SURA Arts Academy is a youth photography program run by the Arab American National Museum utilizing Community Arts Partnerships faculty designed to teach middle school students about culture using photography and video as their tool.

Future Cities: Detroit
Students at Bunche Elementary-Middle School collaborated on a 3D model of what they think Detroit should look like in the future.
Over the course of the semester, they explored media portrayals of Detroit and examined ways to change the city so in the future, positive stories would far outweigh the negative. As their ideas developed, students worked together to build a 3D model of Detroit, carefully including components that would encourage positive activities (green space, efficient public transportation, local shopping options, etc…).
