In the afternoon portion of the workshop, each team of students used their coding and engineering skills to create whatever they chose. The Idalia students chose to make a piano out of a pair of latex gloves that was then used to play a tune or two. Submitted by Cindy Soehner

What an incredible experience teaching Idalia Students! We once again explored the charcoal medium. Instead of eyes; this year was dedicated to animal skulls. I am drawn to native animal skulls in my own artwork. As an artist I am constantly trying to tell a story through visual elements. My husband and sons go shed hunting every year and occasionally bring home a preserved skull. I am over the moon when this happens. I always tell my husband, "Don't bring me flowers, bring me a skull." I have many questions that come to mind: How did that animal die? Disease? Natural Causes? Predator? Did the animal migrate? Did it have babies? What was the animal's territory?... on and on. With a narrative already built in; I do not have work as hard on the visual side.
The workshop consisted to a choice between four different skulls. I then broke down step by step how to apply the char-coal medium. We got messy, but we had fun! The kids did great and I had a wonderful time getting to know them. Thank you again, Tosha Wise! Submitted by Cyndie Weyerman
