Arts Collective After School

Arts Collective After School (ACAS)

IMG_9546What is ACAS?

Arts Collective After School (ACAS) is a program on the yard of the Mt. Washington Elementary School campus from 2:30 to 4:30. ACAS will invite different groups on to the campus for these days that focus on science, technology, engineering and the arts. The projects will emphasize collaborative learning, both analytical and intuitive methodologies, problem solving and critical thinking. Most importantly they will provide a space in the school for a more open, explorative, experimental approach to making. If you have any questions, please contact us at artscollectiveas@gmail.com.

Who can participate in the ACAS programs?

ACAS is free and open to all students, including STAR, Beyond the Bell and anyone who is on the yard.

LA Makerspace

Maker Education is interest-driven, hands-on learning using the Making process: breaking down your goals into component parts, finding and accessing necessary information, and teaching yourself the skills to achieve them.

Maker Education can be used to teach many skills, but most importantly, it teaches how to learn.

When you learn in a Maker style, you learn:

Resilience: When you make a project hands-on, you quickly learn that “failure” is just information to help you improve your design and succeed.

Confidence: When you succeed in solving the problems that come up in making, you learn you are able to solve all kinds of problems, in your schoolwork and in all areas of life.

Innovation and Creativity: When there is no “right way,” you learn how to invent new ways.
