Collaborative Design Students work with local teachers

Danielle Olson (MFACD ’13), Emma Conley (MFACD ’13) and Laura Devito (MFACD ’13) are working on a book project with Sarah Taylor, Founder of Sunnyside Environmental School. The book’s purpose is to provide principles rooted in education, love, the environment and with little or no use of any money. The point is, any teacher could take this book and apply it to their classroom without extra resources and come away with additional knowledge, perhaps wisdom and feeling appreciated.

We thought what better way to incorporate artwork into the project than to approach the teachers we are designing the book for – and make the book with them. In the next few weeks this book should be finished (crossing fingers) and being sent out to the world.
