Can someone check the waiting room?
Adam Martínez
39:33
What was that code again?
Mary Ann Vaca-Lambert
40:07
For Menti 13 65 16 7
Catherine Chao
42:59
Instead of just a drying area, just a general prep or process area.
Annie Eldridge
43:24
we’ll need multiple workspaces, I think. One for more performance/movement based work and one for more visual mediums.
Beverly Barrett
43:26
Digital art - studio area
Annie Eldridge
44:45
i think a combination will be best, we have several noisy groups running at one time
Annie Eldridge
45:02
(after school program)
Adam Martínez
45:56
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
kerry
47:01
I like that a longer hallway encourages people to walk by many studios and see new works displayed outside of classes, perhaps
Aleshia Bonilla
47:31
I like the look of the noticeable materials, but not the extent that it takes away from the art
Stacy Pandey
47:57
what are noise ramifications to height?
Adam Martínez
47:57
Children spread noise
Beverly Barrett
48:11
Tall if there are sound absorbing materials
Matt Nicholson
48:20
From a sound perspective, cavernous would be more loud
Aleshia Bonilla
48:33
I said tall, but that's just because it makes it look grand. there will be some noise issues
Annie Eldridge
48:46
for the feel— tall, definitely
Nikki H
48:55
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
Aleshia Bonilla
49:14
It might be nice to have some of both, some spaces that feel more intimate and other that feel grand, light and airy
Annie Eldridge
50:43
theatre and digital
Adam Martínez
50:43
with options to change lighting
Matt Nicholson
51:05
Good call, Nikki :)
Annie Eldridge
51:19
yeah flexibility is ideal in all things with the kiddos
Elaine Esparza
51:38
Large windows during the summer months could also be a problem with energy for AC
Aleshia Bonilla
51:42
Those are both great points for the need of certain spaces to be completely light (and sound) controlled
Catherine Chao
51:43
Digital classrooms will need minimal or controllable light, to reduce glare on screens.
Adam Martínez
52:19
enviro options
Aleshia Bonilla
54:53
The teachers probably no a lot more about what they need for storage of art supplies. Lockers would be great for the students.
Elaine Esparza
55:46
inner courtyard is a great idea, it's enough of a green space but isn't too distracting for younger students
Stacy Pandey
55:51
easy access to safe outdoor environment matters more than the view
Adam Martínez
56:02
The inner courtyard could be community envisioned
Aleshia Bonilla
58:00
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
Catherine Chao
58:22
Yes, privacy is an important aspect.
Caroline Enriquez
59:10
from a safety perspective
Elaine Esparza
59:25
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
Kyle Armstrong
01:00:58
the ability to lock those access points to keep people out and kids in would be useful
Ariel Ximenes
01:01:29
I can hear.
Adam Martínez
01:01:30
Indeed, Kyle!
kerry
01:02:12
we have glorious weather - being able to incorporate nature/natural light into making art or taking a mini break outdoors sounds lovely
Adam Martínez
01:02:30
an open space as well, for ball play
Adam Martínez
01:03:51
the park space would be dedicated just for the dac?
Mr. George
01:03:56
oh yes, ball play is inportant
Mr. George
01:03:58
m
Mr. Jon
01:04:48
Our art kids do complain about the sun and heat, so covering would be nice
Adam Martínez
01:04:52
Keep it simple
Stacy Pandey
01:05:26
the grass but must have shade
Adam Martínez
01:06:41
No high climbing
Guiniviere Webb
01:07:00
I agree with Adam
Aleshia Bonilla
01:08:03
👍for the outdoor theater space too
Aleshia Bonilla
01:09:17
@annie - Those are great ideas
Adam Martínez
01:09:24
I love the idea of climbable sculptures
Adam Martínez
01:10:27
Indeed!
Matt Nicholson
01:10:35
sound sculptures/playscapes (complimentary to the new park across from current DAC)
Mr. Jon
01:11:11
Some of our kids love digging holes and building with sticks and rocks
Catherine Chao
01:11:30
I think we get a lot of enrichment from visiting shows in the Gallery, but it doesn't need to be in *close* proximity.
Matt Nicholson
01:12:57
I didn't vote for adult studio access, but I am sure it is beneficial for them to witness that space.
Caroline Enriquez
01:13:16
I want a giant cookie!
Elaine Esparza
01:13:19
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
Adam Martínez
01:13:21
Cookie. Cookie. Cookie!
Aleshia Bonilla
01:13:49
Don't worry, I'm hiding in a closet to attend this ;-)
Caroline Enriquez
01:13:52
partnership w/ Tiff's!
kerry
01:13:58
angry 6 year old. sorry!! lol
Elaine Esparza
01:17:57
the central library has them near the kids area
Elaine Esparza
01:18:02
chess/ checkers
Cidnye Stott
01:22:39
similar to the Central Library, in that it’s interesting enough to visit and explore
Catherine Chao
01:23:13
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
Catherine Chao
01:26:14
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.
kerry
01:27:46
like an art lab, the way scientists have space for their creative problem solving works, an art lab for new ideas and new works
Matt Nicholson
01:28:24
ditto that
Annie Eldridge
01:29:49
I put I’d walk, so long as it’s an accessible 1-2 minutes for folks of all abilities
Nikki H
01:30:01
A farther parking space would be fine for me but it would be important to have accessible parking closer
Caroline Enriquez
01:30:52
Drop off/pick up close for camps but for regular visits 1-2 min walk is no big deal.
Stacy Pandey
01:31:01
walking is fine but access from the main road to avoid traffic congestion should be considered
Adam Martínez
01:31:17
I think there are parents who need to pick up and go with expediency
Stacy Pandey
01:31:48
yes also parents trying to meet exact pick up time requirement
Adam Martínez
01:32:14
^
Aleshia Bonilla
01:33:24
Yeah, maybe not close in parking, but covered drop off / pick up directly connected to the building
Elaine Esparza
01:33:41
maybe a parking lot a few hundred yards off with a bus and pick up/ drop off only in front of the building
Adam Martínez
01:35:21
I love the barn doors!
Elaine Esparza
01:36:59
also composting/ recycling for Austin zero waste goals, especially if there's food trucks/ cafe
kerry
01:37:57
oh yea! native flowers for pollinators would be cool, monarchs come through here in the spring and feb
Elaine Esparza
01:38:05
yes! native plants
Beverly Barrett
01:38:30
Gourd gardens!
Stacy Pandey
01:38:39
native plants, talk to Austin water conservation staff, and grow green staff they have a wealth of knowledge
Catherine Chao
01:38:40
I like the garden idea too, a lot of our lessons with early childhood have growth themes
Catherine Chao
01:38:46
or bugs
Elaine Esparza
01:38:55
would flooding be an issue for the gardens if it's near the lake?
Caroline Enriquez
01:39:09
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.
Adam Martínez
01:39:46

kerry
01:39:53
the wildflower center has this like free build area with all this stuff kids build with creative play like that is cool
Annie Eldridge
01:40:34
Thank you for soliciting feedback! Very glad to be here :)
Caroline Enriquez
01:40:59
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.
Matt Nicholson
01:41:14
Yes! Thanks for allowing us to be part of the process.
Annie Eldridge
01:41:17
feels good to be part of building things with the new frame of mind so many have fought so hard for.
Elaine Esparza
01:42:06
Green roofing?
Beverly Barrett
01:43:16
Have you asked kids what they think?
Beverly Barrett
01:43:47
If it's like the current DAC programs it will be fantastic!!! Thank You!
Stacy Pandey
01:43:56
so excited to see what you come up with! Thanks for reaching out for feedback Catherine
