Teaming and Designing for Art for All - Work in Progress

Final Paper
View File

The Art for All (AfA) endeavor brings together teams of freshman engineering students and sophomore art students to address the physical barriers many with disabilities encounter when using art tools and resources of the able artist community. Freshman engineering students in an introduction to engineering design course team with art students in a sophomore figure drawing course to understand the users’ boundaries with art creation and to brainstorm and select the best solution. The engineering students design, build, and test the solution, including the client and art students as needed. Upon completion, the finished device is delivered to the user or the customer’s facility. This paper reports on the experience of the collaboration of the art and engineering students and its effect on the brainstorming component of the design process.
