Metal Installation Collaboration, 2013, Sartell High School

Heidi Jeub is a painter and book artist who insists on people working together to change the world! Sometimes the change is small; sometimes it can be huge... either way it can be amazing!

Heidi graduated from Sartell High School in 1995, assuming she was going to be an Architect someday. Yet, after realizing her interests lie in so many other categories, she realized that art was the path worth taking... 

And that path, brought her back to these hallways, to create an engraved metal welcome sign with the help of 3 classes (Photo, MultiMedia & Metals), 4 teachers (Boline, Heckman, Phillips, and Schulte) and 1 pretty awesome volunteer (Cori Schneider)! 

 

///Big Idea////

By creating together using a variety of skill sets, we learn to communicate and collaborate across disciplines.

 

How can a creative project be a way to test out technologies and uncharted experiences?

How can we learn together and see uses of those technologies in future projects? 

A metal installation will be created with the help of students from the photography, multi-media and metals classes at Sartell High School.

  • Students will learn a new aspect of the fabrication process, that they did not already know. Students will experience parts of the fabrication process in an art project in which they all have input.
  • Students will produce one aspect of the installation, primarily in the metals shop.
  • Students will analyze the challenges and benefits of collaboration and shared fabrication.
  • There will be an expanded interest in applied arts (metal and wood shop skills) after this workshop, due to familiarity.
