This spring, beginning in mid-January of 2012 and continuing through early May, California College of the Arts (CCA) will be sponsoring an exciting class which pairs art and design students with Esparto community members to give voice and form to the history of this area, and of the Esparto train station in particular, and to envision together the future of this place. The class is part of a special program called ENGAGE at CCA which “places students at the center of project-based learning with a focus on community engagement.” An exhibition of student/community partner work will take place in early May of 2012 – hopefully at the train station.
If you are interested in hearing more about this project – and/or would like to participate – please come to the October 18 meeting of the Esparto Citizens Advisory Committee. The meeting starts at 7 p.m. (location to be announced). I will be there, along with Alexis Petty and Melissa Martin, the instructors. See the Course Description above for more details.
