Welcome to the STEMarts@PASEO Portfolio!
The STEMarts@PASEO Youth Program provides educational programming for our youth built around The PASEO festival and its visiting artists. We bring local, national and international artists into the schools and we bring students to the festival for engaging STEAM experiences such as classroom workshops, online curriculum tools, artist talks or internship opportunities.
Our Youth Program allows students to collaborate with festival artists exploring STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in their art-making process. Students learn valuable STEAM skills through creative expression, social practice, and collaboration. We believe that the challenge and potential of STEAM education are for all students to have access to the latest technologies and 21st-century thinking, especially in rural areas with limited access. The PASEO is the perfect platform for local students and teachers to use these tools to play, explore and imagine a better world.
Featured Projects 2018
Paseo Project transported nearly 300 students from Taos County middle and high schools to Espacio la Nube in Kit Carson Park for a sneak preview of an award-winning pavilion designed by three young architects from Madrid, Spain. Artists provided demos and gave students behind the scenes look on how the work was created.
The Projecting Particles Collective visited Taos Day School to deliver a three-day immersive workshop that combined particle physics, native science, and projection art. For the Paseo Festival student work was projected on to the tipi curated by Tagtool founder/artist, Markus Dorninger.
Paseo artist Cristopher Cichocki worked with Taos Charter 6th-grade students to elevate their connection to the environment through artistic and scientific investigations creating land art mandalas. Student work was projected for the final artist installation, Circular Dimensions at the PASEO Festival.
