We're thrilled to share with you all some of the amazing work that our 5th and 6th graders have produced. These incredible students, enrolled in our new Heidelberg Arts Leadership Academy (HALA) course, "Entrepreneurship Empowerment," are exploring business and entrepreneurship, and working to collectively create a product.
HALA students gain critical thinking, problem solving, and collaboration skills and the course culminates with students selling their products as a social enterprise in the community.
Last week they created group designs which will be printed on bags and t-shirts and sold at Eastern Market Corporation. Their guest artist and silkscreen coach was James Morris, a local business owner who runs DSE Detroit. Be sure to head down to Eastern Market and support these wonderful students!
