Limited Capacity filling up

The blending of classical and contemporary ways of making is quickly becoming required curriculum at elite art schools and studios across the country. I will provide information about how and why I chose to create the program where I did and the advantages it provides for cross disciplinary collaboration with our engineering, career technical education, and digital media departments, philanthropy through our veterans program, and entrepreneurial opportunities through our fab lab club. I will talk about the challenges of creating curriculum for a community college that has students from all different walks of life and everything from retired computer engineers from silicon valley to kids right out of highschool. I will speak to how this helped develop course content and curriculum that keeps more experienced students challenged, yet simplistic enough that the younger students aren't overwhelmed. With an emphasis in design, technique, and material characteristics I'm able to teach collaboration, resourcefulness, problem solving, and time management. Sample curriculum and projects will be provided for all attendees.
