AP 3-D Retreat Success!

The AP 3-D retreat at Menucha was better than I could've hoped! Every one of my students helped to make it great. We all made interesting artwork, built friendships and had a wonderful time playing outside in the sun! Our guest artist, JacobTietze, was also A-MA-ZING!

ART 21 Videos Online

Pictures from the "Identity" video.

Hey! Check out these videos...
Each one of the videos has a theme that is explored by several artists. Many of the artists use sculptural media to express their thoughts. The thing that I think is really cool is that the producers are really interested in showing the processes that the artists use and spend time with the artists while they are working and talking about their ideas.
Who knows, watching this might help you develop your own thoughts on CONCENTRATION development!
Watch them by theme or by season online at:
