San Diego Teens Help Build Studios For Thriving Art Community
San Diego teens are making a difference in their local community. ‘Team Sempiternal’ is a group of 54 9th graders building ‘tiny homes’ for San Diego artists. Students are designing, drafting and building tiny houses for local artists in San Diego in order to provide affordable housing to keep art alive in San Diego.
The project is possible in connection with Space 4 Art, a local non-profit arts education community, and their head architect and co-founder, Bob Leathers. Leathers has completed over 2,000 architectural projects, many of which were volunteer-built projects, in all 50 states and eight foreign countries. Along with building these homes the students will also be writing and publishing a book, A Tiny Home Is Where The He[ART] Is, which will showcase the fourteen artists’ lives, work and stories leading up to the designs of their tiny homes. This project and book hopes to send the message that art is an important part of society, to be honored and recognized.
