1 in stock

This booklet is a collaboration by seven students from North-Grand High School working with Ms‭. ‬Jung, a math teacher, and Marc Fischer‭, ‬a teaching artist‭. ‬We‭ ‬work together through a program initiated by Chicago Arts Partnerships in Education‭ (‬CAPE‭).

‬Our school is on the West Side of Chicago between Hermosa and West Humboldt Park‭. ‬Due to the COVID-19‭ ‬pandemic‭, ‬all of our instruction during the 2020-21‭ ‬school‭ ‬year was online and remote‭. ‬Our group included first year students that have never met their teachers or any of their fellow students in person‭, ‬as well as a junior and graduating seniors‭.‬

We met after school twice a week on Google Meets to draw together‭. ‬Normally we would be making art in a classroom or going on field trips to cultural spaces and museums‭. ‬This year we hung out online‭, ‬mostly drawing with our laptop cameras off until we were‭ ‬ready to share our work‭.
