Under the direction and planning of the Lead Artist, Interns:
1. Learned about crime and violence issues that face the 53204 neighborhood (where ArtWorks is physically located) through internet research, advice solicited from a community leader in their neighborhood, and personal experience sharing, all organized by the Lead Artist.
3. Used these designs to brainstorm ideas to design various images and slogans to combat the theme they selected using their peers and younger youth in the community as their audience.
The Interns’ designs were used to create a series of print-ready crime intervention posters at the Art Institute’s design lab during a series of eight Friday night visits. The posters were printed and distributed to locations throughout the city that serve youth.
