Session 2 is in the books. Students resumed prep on their team collections and made decisions for fabric and finishing that they will complete in the subsequent classes. 

 

Next week will also include a visit from Digital Media Artist Neil Anthony who will provide hands-on instruction on professional techniques to capture their collections in preparation for showcase at their public exhibit.

We wrapped with an exercise discussing the budget considerations for calculating and pricing their work including cost of supplies and time allocated to the overall project. Then, a review of plans for the upcoming exhibition.

Students will have an awesome opportunity to showcase their work during an exclusive exhibit at the magnificent Grounds for Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey.

March 28 -- Beyond Expectations had an opportunity to participate in the Gregory School Stakeholder Meeting hosted by the principal Michael Rosenberg. Local businesses and community organizations were represented around the table as well as attendees from the Mayor's and Superintendent's office. 

The meeting was followed by Listening Tour conducted by Superintendent Dr. Frederick McDowell, Jr. 

Ideal venue to connect and share ideas on how we can show collaborative support for our students, parents, teachers, and schools.

It's an ideal opportunity that we use each each year to forge connections between community, volunteers, and local organizations.

Hundreds of warm coats and socks were donated by our phenomenal partner Grounds for Sculpture along with shirts, sweaters and ties provided by Hamilton Horizons Federal Credit Union. It was a great way to spend our last day of service for the year sorting and wrapping the items that were delivered to First Baptist Church of Trenton for children and families in need this holiday season.  

Thanks to all of the awesome, dedicated volunteers who continue year after year to give their time in service to others.
