An Important Drawing

Luca has never walked up to me and asked to hang a drawing he did or have his picture taken with a drawing.  Today, 2.12.19, was the day he did both, so here it is!

Nothing make me happier than a student taking pride in his or her work.

Paper and Metal Construction

Every October, after doing printmaking, I tend to do origami and paper constructions.  Many of the kids like it, but Brayden was one of the few that went over the top and made multiple objects with paper.  A lot of students like this project, so it’s pretty popular and it’s always great to see what they come up with. Here’s another post about a student project constructed with paper.DSCN8381.JPGAbove is a table and chairs Brayden made.

DSCN8523I had some aluminum flashing, so I brought some pop rivets and the appropriate tools. About the only thing I showed him was how to cut and bent the metal, because the actual construction was very much like the paper construction.  I thought he’d cut himself a a few times, due to bending and cutting sheet metal, but he never did!

DSCN8524Here you can see Brayden using the hand drill to make a hole to insert the pop rivet.

DSCN8550The table and chair done!  Brayden did a great job on measuring, learning how to use new tools and following through on an idea!

From 4-5 Years Ago

From time to time Google sends you an auto generated e-mail of pics you’ve taken years ago.  I thought these were fun.  I have lots more, these were just in a folder and easy to upload.   I’d like to attach some names so, if you want a name with a particular picture, let me know!
