for Oakland Art Murmur!
Through a grant from the City of Oakland Public Art Program's Open Proposals, City Canvas will work with eighth grade students at Westlake Middle School near Lake Merritt. As part of a leadership course, the students will be working with the community and creating art that explores their identities as youth and as Oakland residents, and examines how they fit into the broader civic community.
As part of King Middle School's after school program, City Canvas is teaching a class in which students will explore organic food, the slow food movement, and food justice issues in the context of creating art. Each session of this hands-on art class will involve creating related art.
