Model Making: Historic Biplanes
Looking for a tangible sense of accomplishment? Building a scale model requires patience and attention to detail, but results in an impressive final product. Using a kit and following step-by-step instructions makes the process less intimidating and more rewarding. Each participant will build one of two historic biplanes using non-toxic glue, paint, and decals.
Lisa Kaija received her BA in Art History at Dartmouth College and her K-6 General Education/Visual Arts teaching certification through the Upper Valley Teacher Institute. During the last thirty years, she taught all subjects in grades K-4 and some subjects in grade 5-6 in various Upper Valley public and private schools. She has trained mid-life career changers to become teachers and raised five children with her husband, Kevin. Lisa revels in teaching art. The question she dodges most often is “Are you an artist?,” since she considers herself a teacher first and an artist second, and elementary art teachers need to know a little about a lot of different art forms. She thrives on challenges and enjoys being creative with people of any age.
