Ripple Effect 2018-2019 Sample.jpg

Ripple Effect is a free, weekly STEAM class that focuses on integrating science, technology, engineering, and math with art. These classes have been generously funded by a grant from the Dunham Fund and will be available each year through 2021. All classes are held at Water Street Studios.

The course is completed in 3 sittings - meeting weekly 3 times. Each 3-week session of the course is identical. Students may attend only one session per school year.

2018-2019 Curriculum:

During this 3-week course, students will learn about dendrites and fractals in nature and in math. We'll learn two different ways to create dendrites with paint and chemicals. Each 12-student class will create a collaborative piece of artwork that will go on public display. Both art and STEM vocabulary will be reinforced with each fun project. 


Ripple Effect is generously funded by the Dunham Fund. We are grateful for their mission to enrich lives in our communities. This program is offered free to all eligible students.
