The College of Charleston Architecture & Art History Club will host Brick-by-Brick: Building a Curriculum on a Brick Wall on Saturday, November 22 at the American College of Building Arts.  The purpose of this event is to give the College of Charleston students hands-on experience with masonry and curriculum development.  Students will develop educational modules designed to meet teacher’s goals to teach math, geometry, history, etc. through design and hands-on experiential learning.  The modules will be used in the 3rd through 8th grade level classrooms in the Charleston County Schools by the Design + Arts + Preservation in the Schools (DAPS) initiative in partnership with Engaging Creative Minds.

Not only is this event a great experience to gain inside knowledge into the world of architectural history, preservation, and education, but it also serves as a great resume builder and networking opportunity if these fields are appealing to students looking into the future.

We are seeking a total of twelve students to participate who are interested in architectural history, working with materials, and educational outreach.  This event is open to all College of Charleston students regardless of major who are not afraid to get their hands dirty.

To participate, please email you name, major(s), email address, and a statement of no more than 150 words explaining your desire to participate in this event to Meagan Pickens at by Tuesday, November 11. Participants will be notified by November 15.
