What it is: New Sense Studios is an art and design after school program for youth 6-17 years old in the Raleigh, NC area. It has partnerships with the Boys and Girls club of America and other after school programs. The program pairs NCSU College of Design students with artistically passionate kids to develop their art and design skills.
What I did: I directed New Sense Studios and was responsible for educational direction and the logistics of running the program. I designed weekly projects for 4 locations and hired, trained, and supervised a team of volunteers from NCSU's College of Design. I worked collaboratively with Boys and Girls club program directors to increase arts education. My efforts grew the program from being an idea to a proven creative and educational institution servicing over 75 students per week.
