Art Factory PILOT 2017
The NSCAD Art Factory was a pilot project developed by Leesa Hamilton, Education and Community Outreach Consultant and Catherine Allen, Manager NSCAD’s School of Extended Studies, in partnership with Phoenix Youth Programs. The Art Factory program provides senior level NSCAD students with employment, training and support in workshop development and delivery. In 2017, we were able to offer a Winter and Summer Pilot Program, each program consisted of a series of weekly, hands on workshops for Phoenix Participants. The Art Factory was designed to further develop the participant’s art making practices and demonstrate the opportunities available at NSCAD University.
The Art Factory PILOT opened NSCAD’s professional art studios to a wider community of people, expanding the possibilities of art making. Art Factory I had participants working in the jewellery studio, 3D printing as well as in the ceramics department. The second pilot project focused on creating textiles through dyeing and printmaking processes and then working in the fashion studio to develop constructed products and wearable garments.
