Learn about the Sharpsburg Youth Design Camp, a three-day summer workshop where middle schoolers learned about quilting from elder community members, built a model of a street that was safe and welcoming for people of all ages, and then collaboratively designed and painted a quilt square mural on the street outside of a local park. This workshop will tie the Design Camp to larger themes of teaching design skills to young people, utilizing the design thinking process to create sustainable solutions for community issues, building community across generations, and implementing asphalt art projects to increase walkability and enliven the public realm.
