It Is Alive! Our 3D Printer Comes To Life!

It Is Alive! Our 3D Printer Comes To Life!

Yesterday was a banner day in the lives of the Miscoe MakerCrew! It was our first “make” with the new 3D printer!

What If We Had School Today?

What If We Had School Today?

If we had school today, it would have been the last day of classes for Term 2. Since we have been passing back work since last week, everyone should have their art work by now, except the work we put aside for the art show, which is on April 9. I’m so glad we did […]

365 iPad Drawings/My Year Creating Digitally: All in One Gallery

Because you wanted to see all 365 iPad drawings together in one gallery…and so did I. Here they are exactly as published. I was taking this project literally day-by-day, therefore the information I shared with the drawings changed throughout the year. I admit I got a little carried away with alpacas near the end.
