Students and Operations Manager Alex Ehmer engage with David Wilson’s A Score for Walking

Public Education at The David Ireland House

Spring 2021,

Since January 2021, our Artist Guides have been working with Berk to launch a curriculum on conceptual art for teens, with the goal of expanding their understanding of art and art practice. Workshops for youth aged 14-18 were developed through sculpture, sound, and printmaking and will be led by Artist Guides Laura Pacchini, Steven Loscutoff, and Alex Ehmer, in addition to a special workshop with Resident Artist David Wilson titled, ‘A Score for Walking.’ The Spring program was made possible through Berk’s initiative, Artivate: Public Art Now!, a youth mentorship model of collaborative learning with City Studio, Project Artivism, Collective Action Studio, and now, The David Ireland House.
