The ABC’s of Architectural Letters

The Middle School art class is filled with soft music and quiet chatter.  Teacher Debbie Lamson circulates, questioning a student here, urging a student there, inspiring one and all.

With self-healing board and X-acto, Dixie cups and shipping tape, each student has constructed an architectural letter.  It’s a careful lesson in crafting armature and creating a white, blank surface.


Now to finish with a flourish of painted design and artistic expression!  Debbie is the coach, urging the students to go beyond their comfort zone, to try something new, something bigger and bolder.  Hadn’t thought of that before?  Well, now you have. Didn’t know you could do it?  Of course you can!
