This is my second year organizing a show for Downtown Waukesha's May Art Crawl. STEM will be participating this year! I have also invited some other Waukesha's schools to join us as well. It will be such a beautiful show, held in a gallery space downtown to show case our talented student work. Art Club and current class students are already starting their mini drawing piece but everyone is welcome if your student wants to participate come see Mrs David in the Creative Cafe during FLEX or 2nd connect for details! The show will be up for about a week watch for details soon!
We are halfway done with this rotation and I feel like we could expand this class, there's so much to learn and the students are enjoying creating a dream room with a huge budget!
So far we've learned how to draw a room in perspective using vanishing points, they've learned about the design process used by professional interior designers (5 stages..Programming, Concept Development, Presentation, Execution, and Evaluation). Currently they are wrapping up their floor plan to scale, their furniture shopping lists, and color scheme.
Next week, they will be using line and shapes to create their own pattern that they can use for textiles in their dream room and start their final presentation of their room. Students get to choose how they present; some are creating a 3d model of their room others are going to prepare a professional looking presentation board.
Once the classwork is completed watch for an online portfolio link that I am requiring they share with you via email. I think sharing work with family and friends is great confidence booster!
