DAC Small Groups - Youth Programs - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
Can someone check the waiting room?
What was that code again?

Instead of just a drying area, just a general prep or process area.
we’ll need multiple workspaces, I think. One for more performance/movement based work and one for more visual mediums.
Digital art - studio area
i think a combination will be best, we have several noisy groups running at one time
(after school program)
Adaptability is definitely something the school needs in regards to rain days and other situations that keep kids inside prompting the use of more space
I like that a longer hallway encourages people to walk by many studios and see new works displayed outside of classes, perhaps
I like the look of the noticeable materials, but not the extent that it takes away from the art
what are noise ramifications to height?
Children spread noise
Tall if there are sound absorbing materials
From a sound perspective, cavernous would be more loud
I said tall, but that's just because it makes it look grand. there will be some noise issues
for the feel— tall, definitely
I think there maybe different needs in rooms for different art mediums. While open rooms with exposed features looks nice it doesn't translate to music classes well because we have to consider resonance with sound
It might be nice to have some of both, some spaces that feel more intimate and other that feel grand, light and airy
theatre and digital
with options to change lighting
Good call, Nikki :)
yeah flexibility is ideal in all things with the kiddos
Large windows during the summer months could also be a problem with energy for AC
Those are both great points for the need of certain spaces to be completely light (and sound) controlled
Digital classrooms will need minimal or controllable light, to reduce glare on screens.
The teachers probably no a lot more about what they need for storage of art supplies. Lockers would be great for the students.
inner courtyard is a great idea, it's enough of a green space but isn't too distracting for younger students
easy access to safe outdoor environment matters more than the view
The inner courtyard could be community envisioned
As a parent, it's very cool to be able to view your kids working, but I wouldn't want to public to be able to watch them
Yes, privacy is an important aspect.
from a safety perspective
maybe translucent or frosted window for looking directly into youth studios could be helpful to have the space still feel open with privacy for youth programs
the ability to lock those access points to keep people out and kids in would be useful
I can hear.
we have glorious weather - being able to incorporate nature/natural light into making art or taking a mini break outdoors sounds lovely
an open space as well, for ball play
the park space would be dedicated just for the dac?
oh yes, ball play is inportant
Our art kids do complain about the sun and heat, so covering would be nice
Keep it simple
the grass but must have shade
No high climbing
I agree with Adam
👍for the outdoor theater space too
@annie - Those are great ideas
I love the idea of climbable sculptures
sound sculptures/playscapes (complimentary to the new park across from current DAC)
Some of our kids love digging holes and building with sticks and rocks
I think we get a lot of enrichment from visiting shows in the Gallery, but it doesn't need to be in *close* proximity.
I didn't vote for adult studio access, but I am sure it is beneficial for them to witness that space.
I want a giant cookie!
maybe the computer lab or digital space as well as theatre/ music area can connect youth and adult programs for young adults to feel the in between
Cookie. Cookie. Cookie!
Don't worry, I'm hiding in a closet to attend this ;-)
partnership w/ Tiff's!
angry 6 year old. sorry!! lol
the central library has them near the kids area
similar to the Central Library, in that it’s interesting enough to visit and explore
events/exhibits/shows that bring people in off the "street" or from the surrounding area, just to drop by/drop in and see what's going on
From a youth programming standpoint, we need to be able to have some sort of control over who enters and exits the youth school area, which is why I put manageable.
like an art lab, the way scientists have space for their creative problem solving works, an art lab for new ideas and new works
I put I’d walk, so long as it’s an accessible 1-2 minutes for folks of all abilities
A farther parking space would be fine for me but it would be important to have accessible parking closer
Drop off/pick up close for camps but for regular visits 1-2 min walk is no big deal.
walking is fine but access from the main road to avoid traffic congestion should be considered
I think there are parents who need to pick up and go with expediency
yes also parents trying to meet exact pick up time requirement
Yeah, maybe not close in parking, but covered drop off / pick up directly connected to the building
maybe a parking lot a few hundred yards off with a bus and pick up/ drop off only in front of the building
I love the barn doors!
also composting/ recycling for Austin zero waste goals, especially if there's food trucks/ cafe
oh yea! native flowers for pollinators would be cool, monarchs come through here in the spring and feb
yes! native plants
native plants, talk to Austin water conservation staff, and grow green staff they have a wealth of knowledge
I like the garden idea too, a lot of our lessons with early childhood have growth themes
would flooding be an issue for the gardens if it's near the lake?
Along the lines of what Nikki mentioned, it would be interesting to have a space that featured the other PARD gems like ANSC, Camacho, the MAC, etc.
the wildflower center has this like free build area with all this stuff kids build with creative play like that is cool
Thank you for soliciting feedback! Very glad to be here :)
Camacho does a bike riding camp and mountain biking team, would be cool for them to incorporate a stop here when they're on the trails.
Yes! Thanks for allowing us to be part of the process.
feels good to be part of building things with the new frame of mind so many have fought so hard for.
Have you asked kids what they think?
If it's like the current DAC programs it will be fantastic!!! Thank You!
so excited to see what you come up with! Thanks for reaching out for feedback Catherine
great meeting! thanks for all the good comments
