A CSUMB class of 27 students studying Social Foundations of Education came to Open Ground Studios on Thursday Nov. 21 to get their hands into clay as they worked in groups on an innovative project designed by their teacher, Dr. Scott Waltz. Waltz, a Community Foundation winner of the Allen S. Griffin Award for Excellence in Teaching, consulted with OGS Director in the design of this multi-faceted project. Students are researching historic events in public education where social justice prevails, and then are charged with creating a design for a Public Art Memorial Sculpture to be theoretically installed on the rotunda at the CSUMB Library. Bravo Dr. Waltz for taking education into the arts!
