Did you enjoy this project? The Dream Rocket Project is a source of joy and community when we all work around the table together.
About: Many students found ideas by seeing themselves in the Park environment. Flowers, wispy wind, a wandering eye, athletic logos, falling leaves, buzzing bees, even Vincent Van Gogh’s starry night became our group inspiration working meticulously everyday during lunch hour Art Club. Many students were introduced again to learn how to thread a needle, knot and stitch. We bonded and relaxed in each other’s company of teachers and students.
