Day five with Hans. Thank you, Hans.

Once the eighth graders finished their stars within stars, they got to make free-form pieces: 20131122-165222.jpg

20131122-165318.jpgThe eighth graders' finished dodecahedron, ready to be hung in the math room where every student will see it, a long term reminder of the connections between math and art:

Hans will take them home, dip them in epoxy, build them into the five platonic solids (you remember...tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron), and assemble the five solids into a mural. Look upward as you enter the cafeteria sometime early next year, and you will see it...

20131122-165421.jpgEnormous thanks to everyone at the Brett School, and especially to math teacher Anne Chant for opening her classroom to Hans, to custodian Jay Barnett who kept that classroom—now a glass studio—tidy all through the week, and to Mr. Arnold and his students for covering the tables. Thank you to our many volunteers, in particular Michelle Cleveland, Sue Colten and Margaret Rieser, and to the folks at The Tamworth Lyceum, the Cook Library, and the Community School. Thank you to the extraordinary, creative and hardworking Brett students, and an at least twenty-sided thank you to Hans Schepker for his boundless energy, creativity, connection-making, and cheer. Hans would like us all to watch this: Between the Folds. And some of these: Vi Hart on YouTube.
