Christmas in the Marianas supports art at SIS


Makerspace/Art Studio days with Amie McRoberts has become a huge hit at Saipan International School. Thursday and Fridays in art class are dedicated to Makerspace/Art Studio days. On these days, the students have the freedom to apply the skills and techniques they have learned throughout the year in art to create their own art. The Art Room is open to explore!

The students worked very hard to create decorations for Christmas in the Marianas Christmas tree and village this year. They knew any money that they would win would go back directly to the art studio. (Up to this point Makerspace/Art Studio days were mainly spent creating with donated recycled materials and donated building materials/toys.) The prize money received went to buying Legos, magnetic tiles, marble run sets, paint pens, and so much more.

The students love challenging each other to build stronger and better marble courses or new creatures with the Legos. A new favorite is using the paint pens to paint on blocks to make the newest “Banana and Cherry phones”; they then can be seen walking around the room “taking pictures” on their new phones of their classmates’ new creations.

The students have already started creating a new shopping list for next year’s earnings. They all are so grateful for the donations from the Marianas Visitors Authority annual event and look forward to participating again next year. (PR)
