Mobile Youth Education
Students learn how to use woodworking tools safely, effectively and (ultimately) independent of adult assistance. Class begins with a demonstration on a tool or technique, and then students work on projects that increase in complexity as they progress through the program. Students accumulate a working knowledge of techniques such as sanding, sawing, shaping, drilling, setting screws, using clamps, hammering, and incising. All classes are held in renovated transit buses and trailers where students learn about art, design, and engineering using only hand tools, raw materials, and their imagination. Professional artists teach all classes.
