Journey Exhibit in Singapore; Cupertino Students Participate

Above are 5th Grade student radial patterns reflecting on local community. These designs were created by students in Cupertino, California and were created for the Slot Shelters project. They are translated here into ATC cards (Artist Trading Cards). These cards will be exhibited in an exciting international student art show, Journey, at the Jurong Regional Library in Singapore in March 2012. Some of the Cupertino students created pattens reflecting on the industry which brought their families to journey to California. Other students reflected on their heritage from distant lands and some reflected on the journey Cupertino has taken from agriculture to a technology driven community. It is an exciting opportunity for these students to participate in this innovative international student showcase! I learned about this project through the Art Education 2.0 NING, a wonderful resource for art educators around the world.

Laser Cutting Student Art in Steel

I am beginning to prep San Jose student works for laser cuttings for steel designs to be incorporated into freeway art. The student art will be traced in Illustrator and exported as CAD compatible files. A test file is being sent to the laser cutters to see if I correctly create the file. Keeping my fingers crossed!
