8th Grade Exit Project
I had the pleasure of spending two weeks facilitating a project at Winterhaven, a K-8 school located in SE Portland. As an exit gift to their school, the 8th grade class made and installed ceramic totems into the garden on their campus. We spoke of my favorite installation artists and the idea of site specific art. Working in small groups, they used the concept of community with the time they had spent at their school to fuel the decortions on their totems. At the end of the two weeks, as a class we assembled and installed three pillars of their memories into a beautiful space.
