The Learning Lab develops hands-on, real world learning experiences, re-envisions the educational environment, and utilizes the neighborhood as classroom. We utilize the Gallery and Garden at Art Produce as laboratory in building community and developing creative social space.
Workshops and projects engage students and community members in the process of creative problem solving in the classroom, in the community, and in the work environment. Workshops for all ages are available for a range of interests and abilities in; team building, arts education, sustainable design, and community planning. Educational and professional development activities are connected to national standards and STEAM education.
"The Learning Lab at Art Produce is an educational gem. I've had the privilege of working in the space to bring together UCSD undergraduates, graduate students, and practicing teachers to experience the arts, STEAM, and a vibrant example of community engagement and cross-institutional collaboration."
-Caren Holtzman, Faculty, UCSD Department of Education Studies. Director, Partners At Learning (PAL) Program
Intuit Experience Design team workshop-
“Lynn provided our team - a group of software designers and writers with a creative and entertaining hands-on experience that we still talk about months later. It was a delightful afternoon of team building, bonding and fun.” - Liz M., Intuit Experience Design team
“Our company event at Art Produce was a perfect blend of new experiences, creative outlets, and team building exercises, all under the stewardship of Lynn Susholtz, who kept it light, fun and intellectually stimulating. It really was so unique and positive and I highly recommend it for any group that wants something different and out of the box!”
