Pinewood Elementary Fundraiser

Pinewood Elementary Fundraiser

One of my favorite things about Ambrose is getting to know local teachers and students through collaborative design & print workshops. This summer we hosted a team-building workshop with the staff at Pinewood Elementary in Jenison, MI, and in concert with their ”Teach like a Pirate Day” (a day to explore new adventures in learning) teacher Susan VanTimmeren contacted us about creating t-shirts to sell as a fundraiser for their program. Last week her class ventured to Holland to learned how screen printing works, and their students got their hands metaphorically messy (they actually did an awesome job and printed with clean hands) printing 70 shirts that were pre-sold as a fundraiser.

Sorry, not sorry for the messy tables. ;) Above, students worked on quality control and made sure all the sizes were accounted for. We had an old “Support Child Labor,” campaign a few years back. I promise the student work is more play / learning and less factory, as you can see from the photo below.

We had a blast hosting students from all of the world for a one day design & printmaking blitz as a part of Kendall College’s Portfolio Camp. My friend Kris Jones runs the program and it’s been really fun to see it evolve into a mini-college-prep experience that really prepares students for life at art school. Check out the highlights above.
