Sculptor Bridgette Mongeon wants her sculpture “Move One Place On” to be more than just a nice piece of art for which one can enjoy. She wants the art to be interactive and educational. “Move One Place On,” has become a tool for Bridgette to use in educating other in such things as literature and history, but more than that it is also a tool for STEAM education. She was the keynote speaker at the Texas Art Educators Conference on the topic of STEAM education in the studio and in Wonderland STEAM education is the interdisciplinary use of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math.
Bridgette has spoken to young students on Math and Science as it pertains to the sculptures in her studio and Wonderland., and offered some free materials for parents, libraries and students. She will be developing more free online material and hopes to create a collective list for other parents, teachers librarians, and homeschoolers to use. And of course her book 3D Technology In Fine Art and Craft: Exploring 3D Printing, Scanning, Sculpting and Milling talks about the processes Bridgette used in her studio to create art. She used the same processes to create “Move One Place On” and is completing a book on this.
If you know of any material or books for any age that you think should be on this list or that others might be willing to share, please contact the artist.
Let’s use this art and curious adventure to create educational opportunities for all.
