Teaching from Old Textbooks

Teaching from Old Textbooks is a series of workshops and an accompanying exhibition using technical school textbooks from the 1950s and 1960s as the curriculum led by artist Kamau Patton. While he was an artist-in-residence at Helms Middle School, Patton discovered multiple practical experiments and technical textbooks ranging from woodworking to electronics from the 1950s and 1960s in a long forgotten classroom closet. Using these found materials as his curriculum, Patton will teach a series of workshops in which participants will complete one project from these textbooks. The contents of the closet as well as the finished projects will also be displayed in a final exhibition.
