Education Intern here!
Hello! My name is Rocio and I’m the Education Intern at CAM Raleigh. My internship has focused on the partnership that CAM Raleigh has with New Sense Studios. This program offers the youth in our community an opportunity to express themselves through Design and Art to better their skills. I find this to be very important for the youth in our community to experiment with their artistic abilities at a young age.
Here are some photos from the last workshop where have been helping kids design their own shoes according to different neighborhoods of Raleigh.
Brainstorming and ideating!
I have been helping the New Sense Studios student board in implementing new ideas to make this organization strive. I’ve done everything from attending monthly meetings to helping youth alongside the other student volunteers at the weekly workshops, and creating a vision for the future of New Sense.
I believe in the importance that Design and Art has to impact youth and their future to create meaningful connections with our community. I’m excited for the opportunities that CAM Raleigh and New Sense Studios are going to bring to make this happen!
The mission of New Sense Studios is to engage, support and inspire area youth through artistic expression. We believe in art as an outlet for young people to communicate their ideas and passions. We seek to instill a sense of pride and ownership in youth through public display of works in the community.
