Attention Detroit youth!
Tell your friends, neighbors, and family: We need your help to make amazing public art projects in the Northend Detroit, Cody Rouge Community Action Alliance and Osborn Neighborhood Alliance neighborhoods.

C+PADĀ supports long-term, large scale art projects (think DNAC’s Redford Library Mural, but bigger!)

If you need to fulfill service learning hours, etc. this could be a great opportunity for you!

This past Saturday, the DNAC welcomed guest Nicole McDonald into the classroom. Nicole is a stencil artist and she demonstrated & shared her techniques and processes. Most of her work incorporates themes that are decorative and political in content.

We learned that Nicole uses unexpected materials in her craft. Most often, she uses watercolor paper to cut the stencils; the paper’s water resistance and weight make it the stencil plate material of choice as it supports repeated prints.

Many thanks to Nicole, Erin, and Adrianne for an informative, creative demonstration.

Kara, Joye, and Juan have recently started working with a group of students at the Brightmoor Community Center. These sessions will run through December. We’re looking forward to following their progress!
