Educator Andrea Jones writes: From da Vinci, Giacometti, Calder, and Kandinsky to sculpting, working with color and texture, mixing chemicals, solving challenges through invention, and assembling an LED crystal - we have been enjoying learning through art and science!
This club has way too much fun and I just want to keep making art every day!
Plus: MAP comic creators and hand-crafters are super busy working on their stories and character development! They’ve also been learning new hands-on skills and showing off their talents by sculpting with pipe cleaners, foil, duct tape, clay and putty - a few even talked about going into business together making duct tape wallets!
I’m always impressed by how this larger group works so well together in a small space -though it can get loud and busy at times, they are (most of the time!) genuinely kind, considerate and collaborative.
And: MAP music & math focus club is off to a good start and getting ready to welcome more new members next week!
I love seeing kids enjoy working with numbers. They’ve been really into working logic puzzles and it’s been a fun challenge for me to keep up with them!
