Hack Your Classroom

philadelphia, pa

Note: Our director developed this project as a Volunteer with Public Workshop.

This project was part of Philadelphia Mural Arts 'Artrepreneurship' program, empowering young adults to 'hack' their learning/studio space to better meet their artistic production and entrepreneurship needs. Through a 3 week design/build intensive, the students discovered the art of rapid prototyping with wood and zip ties, learned how to use power tools such as drills, jigsaws, and chopsaws, and worked collaboratively to design and build an indoor treehouse/computer lab/art gallery/hangout space.
