Urban Scholars: ICA
Urban Scholars students attend weekly workshops at the Institute of Contemporary Art (ICA) as part of their summer time curriculum. Students will have the opportunity to take a class for a week on different subjects, including fashion design, dj’ing, music video production, and photography.
One group of students designed shirts that represented their identity, displaying their culture with colors and flags. Another group created a mix tape by blending music from some of their favorite musical acts, using state of the art computers and turn tables. And a third group directed, produced, and edited a short film.
As former Urban Scholar students, Jennie and I didn’t get the chance to take courses at the ICA. Personally, I am amazed to see students partaking in these interactive subjects because it shows the evolution of the Urban Scholars Program.
