In August I returned to school, with the new Creative Arts Design Center finished and open! As with any new space, we scrambled to make it student-ready by the first day(s) of school, including new shelving for storage, custom tables, chairs, last minute orders of materials, and unpacking the things that had arrived already. The second floor of this marvelous building houses the design spaces, two dedicated middle school rooms, one flexible ms/hs room, one hs design studio, a robotics / programming room, and one room for elementary teachers to bring their students to for specific projects. There is also a flexible "plaza" for additional collaborative work, presentations, or even concerts - the strings room is also on this floor! Here are a few of the shots of the space from early on in the term.
