Auburn, Ala. - The Auburn Studio Project (ASP), hosted by Auburn Parks and Recreation, the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center, and the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art will be held on Tuesday, March 5 at the Jule Collins Smith Museum. This community-based, art education program offers Auburn 6th and 7th grade students from the Hal Moore Youth Leadership National Academy an interactive, educational experience in the arts.
This year’s theme is Bauhaus twenty-21: An Ongoing Legacy. Bauhaus evolved out of the Arts and Crafts movement and the Bauhaus school was founded in 1919 by German architect Walter Gropius. Bauhaus was instrumental in developing principles that shaped the foundation of modern architecture and design. Students participating in this year's ASP will attend a three-part program: 1) focusing on a visual arts project in which students will create a scale model chair inspired by Bauhaus design; 2) a gallery tour and discussion of Bauhaus photographs; and 3) an additional workshop in which students will be able to design and create a work of Bauhaus inspired architecture.
