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.

Water color painting and 3D model building are some of the many techniques taught to the students that are in the process of constructing a 3 dimensional city of Detroit. Students first chose a building of their choice, which lead to a discussion of why they chose what they did and what else a city will need to function. They then began to create their cities using various materials.
