Professor James in wonderful Ames…
Visual faculty Shelli Hassebrock and her fine group of motivated students helped PI to continue forward this week as the collaboration made its way to this gem located in the breadbasket of Iowa. Home of the little cyclones, Ames High School can boast a student population of 1,500 with a fine visual component that investigates several 2-D, 3-D and 4-Dimensional principles.
AHS is just down the road from Iowa State University, and these little cyclones successfully attacked some of the most complex scenes that PI has yet to offer. Through these drawings the students from Ames learned that PI is about the larger aspect of working together, sharing the burden – and the glory of the process. This was clearly demonstrated as AHS had students working together on PI from the areas of 4-D Art, Graphic Design, Drawing and even Photography.
A sincere thank you to the administration of AHS, Mrs. Hassebrock, Coach Norris and Ms. Quintero for their support during PI’s vist to the heartland. Good things are happening in the AHS visual arts program, and PI was glad to partake in their intensive programming.
From the heart of the cyclone,
Associate Professor of Foundations
