Collaborate/Create is a collection of nine collaborative works by the students and teaching artists of the Art in the House program.
Art in the House is an after-school arts program provided by the Ohio Alliance for Arts Education. Studio art classes are offered within Columbus Federation of Settlements’ facilities, as well as other neighborhood partner sites. In this program, children ages 5-12 can begin their connection to creative thinking, leadership and lifelong learning through the arts while working with a teaching artist and artist apprentice.
At Art in the House, we strive to develop 21st century learning skills, or “the four C’s”- creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication. We work to create a culture of creative collaboration- an environment in which students respect one another’s ideas and creative expression is encouraged and nurtured. These works were created by students working collaboratively with each other and their teaching artist to illustrate a big idea, or issue related to their own lives.
Collaborate/Create includes works based on the big ideas of dreams, family, community, peace and growth. Works are in a variety of media, presenting a range of skills and techniques from young artists in grades K-6 throughout the neighborhoods of Franklin County.
