The Final Week Of Maker Corps Summer 2014

Today is my final day at PAA as a Maker Corps intern, and I’m sorry to go. This summer has gone by so quickly, and this final week has flown right by. We threw a back- to- school event with Mound Stem Elementary School on Monday, and featured a Spin Art station, a t-shirt screen printing station, and a Makey Makey station. It was a great way to end this internship. Wether¬†you have been following this blog for the past several months or this is your first time reading, I would like to thank everyone for making this opportunity possible for me. I am truly grateful to the Progressive Arts Alliance, Maker Corps, and all the individuals involved in making this venture a success. I am looking forward to more PAA adventures in the future!

Maker Corps at PAA Hip Hop Camp!

In our final camp of the summer, myself and fellow Maker Adrienne were invited to share some of our activities with the campers at PAA’s final Hip Hop Camp, which took place at the Idea Center in downtown Cleveland. The students experimented with Makey Makeys, the computer looper MnnTss, stop motion animation, and created their own instruments. They incorporated these experiments into their own hip hop styles and processes, to help prepare them for the final performance. It was a blast to work with these blossoming young artists, and I look forward to hearing about their amazing future accomplishments!
