Today was pretty awesome as I worked with students to put up two quick art installations around school. The first was a tape drawing installation where students recreated blind contour studies of birds from their sketchbooks. The students were very skeptical at first, but after the experience I kept seeing them showing their work to their friends. I think they were surprisingly pleased by their tape drawings.
Second, a pair of students and I utilized laser cut stencils to create an interactive installation for an upper school student event tonight. The stencils and the crushed chalk worked just as planned.
Today, I finally felt like this new community got a glimpse of what I bring to the table and how I hope to make the Arts shine brighter throughout the school. It was a good day.
