This is a very large collaborative project underway with the Wentworth School in Scarborough and the welding students at Portland Arts and Technology High School (PATHS). There are 32 students from 12 sending schools taking part from PATHS. This is a great example of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math). The students are creating a fence for the existing school garden that will become a gallery for outdoor art and science projects. Art teacher Joanne Maloney is involved along with the teachers who teach the STEM subjects. Some of the work will focus on kinesthetic, or tactile learning, and movement.
Later on in May teaching artist Ann Thompson will work with Wentworth students to create wire sculptures for display on the fence.
The coordination of the idea has been enormous, involving many adults and students, and a wonderful example of collaboration.
