Since we would normally be going to Makerspace this week, students will be encouraged to create in their own individual Makerspaces using recyclable and found materials from home!
Thanks so much to all the families who are sharing their love and appreciation with the Hearts for Healthcare Workers. Our Frontline Heroes are truly touched by your sincerity and creativity, so please keep sending us your pictures!
Here are some extra activities to continue your love of art from home!
I have included ideas and links for a variety of games, activities and virtual tours for you to explore on your own, aside for the weekly assignments. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions, comments and pictures of your work, inspired by these resources or from your own imagination.
