Walking into the morning Art Club meeting at Meadowmere Elementary, you could immediately sense the energy in the room. I see students with their heads facing down, concentrating on their art projects below.
"What are you working on?" I asked.
"We are 3-D drawing our names!" a boy enthusiastically answered but didn't look up from his work. He was holding a 3-D pen and carefully drawing the base for his name plate.
Adryan Steinberg, art teacher, wanted her students to learn how to use 3-D pens to illustrate concepts. She wanted to start with an easier concept of drawing their names. And since the 3-D pens were new to her, she learned how to use them along with her students.
"It was a lot of trial and error at first, students were helping each other and helping me, it was amazing to see student persevere during this art project." Steinberg commented.
Take a look at the pen in action and listen to the excitement of the students.
The next step is to ask students to create a 3-D concept of their choice as this was just the first project with a 3-D pens.
