Each year, BRICKsters begin their journey with the arts with this months-long project. Beginning with a simple piece of wood, students sand for smooth edges then prime and paint their color of choice.Next, the students receive a design template. From here, they must measure, erase, and measure again and mark where each and every one of their hundreds of nails must go on the board. At this point, students are learning math skills, patience and focus.When each place is marked, the students begin nailing…and nailing….and nailing! After boxes and boxes of nails and many lessons in concentration, the students are taught how to string their prjects using colors of their choice. The result is a beautiful project they can keep forever.
Below are the final projects of the 2012 BRICKsters.
