This spring, Spudnik Press partnered with Citizen Schools to pair five Spudnik artists with three classrooms to lead art apprenticeships with middle school students through out the spring.

ART ATTACK! Is a Citizen Schools after school apprenticeship at Walsh Elementary. Every week, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students meet with teaching artist Liz Born to develop a language of visual identity using formal elements like color, shape, and texture. Transforming everyday materials, each student has created an emblematic sculpture in an investigation of the Artist’s decision-making process.

Citizen Schools partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for children in low-income communities across the country. By drawing thousands more citizens into schools each year, they’re promoting achievement, transforming schools, and re-imagining education in America.
