We hold a local private school dear to our hearts. Seabury School in Tacoma challenges gifted children in a community that cherishes each individual and fosters a love of learning, discovery, and creativity. This year we are contributing to their annual auction with two custom crafted items that were designed by the kids from 2 of their classes. The 4th and 5th graders of the “Serpents” class democratically decided to design a coffee table. It will be made from walnut and include a mosaic feature representing flowing water that they will make in class. Here is a sketch-up rendering that we created in class.
I had also taken some time to talk to the 1st and 2nd graders of Seabury’s Navigators class about chair design. We had looked at images of your basic side chairs as well as some artistically inspired chair designs. The kids were then asked to come up with their own designs. The plan is to take one of their designs and build it!
