Our Internship Program last year with Albany High School students was a great success. Funded entirely by Albany Parks and Rec, shout out to Ed Hodney, Director, this group came up monthly to study with me at the Studio learning about geometry, furniture design, joinery, construction, and finishing. They made several great pieces culminating in a bench donated back to the City of Albany. Cool stuff helping students learn how to think critically and how to carry a project through to completion.
Expanding it to two Portland area high schools is our goal for this year. We hope to raise funds for this effort on Friday, 11, September, from 6-8pm. Please rsvp at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to join us. There will be refreshments and a short presentation on our efforts.
