A virtual tour of Heidi O'Donnell Eastman's SY18'-19'

Tasked with recording snippets of Heidi O’Donnell Eastman’s school year was not an easy feat. Sure, there were the picture-worthy days when students were engaged in hands-on learning and the ubiquitous presentations of learning. But there was so much more. As a large part of my senior internship I have had the opportunity to take one of Mrs. Eastman’s classes, participate in the myriad of field studies, drink Scottish Tea and enjoy many oh-so-lovely Scottish sweets,and meet her colleagues from around the world who visited us in New Bedford. There was so much more. You get the picture. So how does one begin? At the beginning, of course! The following video was made over multiple weeks., enjoy!

RISD A Walk Through the Arts

Rhode Island School of Design is a prestigious fine arts and design school located in Providence, Rhode Island. The school also has a museum with numerous paintings, sculptures, and textile displays from famous artists as well as students. RISD is a very open space for students, they have a wide variety of majors to choose from and even hold classes in some parts of the museum so the students can draw inspiration. It truly is an excellent choice for students looking to major in design, and our trip there may have lit the fire of motivation under our students
