Tilling Fallow Land: How school gardens can be integral to the next generation of public schools.

For a child, a garden is more than a greenspace. It can be a place for peace, learning, and ownership. School gardens have been a revisited movement that have caught much momentum in the United States, and Pond Gap Elementary is a local advocate. Horticultural pedagogy is more than just seeing plants grow. School gardens can be an alternative to a more natural and tangible outlet for school curriculum, therapy, and physical and emotional development.

"Middle schoolers are not just our future. They have the ability to investigate real change, starting now."
In TomTod Ideas from PechaKucha Night Akron Vol.3, Joel Daniel Harris shares on TomTod Ideas which gives middle schoolers a serious avenue to explore creativity. Harris is the founder and Executive Dreamer of TomTod Ideas, an innovation incubator for middle school students, centered on launching students’ dreams for the common good. A Malone University alum, Harris has more than a decade of experience as an advocate for early adolescents and has served on a variety of boards and causes in his community. His work includes chairing committees for United Way and Leadership Stark County, serving as a mentor for both Canton City and Plain Local school districts, as a Service Learning Trip leader for Malone University. JDH received his Masters in 2012 from George Fox University and has been regularly honored for his work with students and in the community, including receiving the Layperson of the Year Award from the Canton Professional Educators’ Association (2014), Malone University’s Young Alumnus of the Year (2012) and as a Twenty under 40! recipient (2015).
Joel will be speaking to the underestimated abilities of middle schoolers. The best ideas often come from the places least expected. Rarely does anyone expect much of anything from a middle schooler. The fact is, though, that early adolescence, that liminal space in which middle schoolers reside, is a place of beauty, opportunity and imagination. Get ready for some stories of middle school brilliance and the chance to re-consider what we think "kids" are capable of.

Art History at HoMA School
Gary Liu is a lecturer in the Department of Art and Art History at UH Manoa, and an instructor of art history at the Honolulu Museum of Art School.
You all know about the wide array of expressive art practices taught in the studios at HoMA School, but perhaps it comes as news that the school has also been recently expanding its world of art history offerings too, something a class at an art museum is uniquely equipped to do. Using the example of Chinese ink paintings recently discussed in such classes, this presentation offers a glimpse into the insight gained through HoMA School’s art history lectures, discussions, gallery and vault visits, and film screenings.

PKN Edmonton Kicks It Old School
PechaKucha Night in Edmonton Vol. 5 is coming up in a few short weeks (October 2), and it's going "old school." More than break-beats and tube-socks, PECHA KUCHA NIGHT 5 (PKN 5) explores "OLD SCHOOL" with 10 presentations focusing on looking back and pushing forward in the areas of design, urban-planning, art, and sustainability. In addition to provocative ideas and lively presentations, PKN5 features a cash bar, sweet treats, and tunes provided by DJ Aaron Levin from Weird Canada and CJSR. The event is being held as part of the University of Alberta's Alumni Week.

PechaKucha x School of the Art Institute of Chicago
Later this month (October 23), PechaKucha Night in Chicago is teaming up with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for a special PechaKucha event. Here's more from PKN Chicago organizer Peter Exley: Since PK began in Chicago, one of the most fertile sources of presenters and supporters seems to have been the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Recognizing this, PKN Chicago is organizing a special PK event to coincide with this year's parents weekend. So Moms, Mums, and Dads from around the world converging on Chicago with their offspring attending SAIC will discover PK, and be on the lookout for it back home in their cities. And a new crop of young creatives will get their first taste of PK. We're very excited to be doing this with the [Art Insti] "tute." The poster for the event was designed by Eric Baskauskas.

Their work went into high gear in 2011, and we were extremely proud to see the construction of the school, École La Dignité, that PechaKucha funded along with the Stiller Foundation -- it opened on November 7, 2011. Thank you everyone who supported PechaKucha for Haiti and a massive thank you to Cameron Sinclair and his team for making the school a reality.

The Importance of Drawing [on Your Child’s School Lunch Bag]
"Research has illustrated that 90% of us will do almost all of the drawings we will make in our lifetime before the age of 10. That’s the threshold we pass when someone tells us that we aren't good at art or math or science.” In The Importance of Drawing [on Your Child’s School Lunch Bag] from PechaKucha Night Batavia’s first volume, Speaker Peter Exley discusses the importance of thoughtful and deliberate sketches. We all spent time in our youth expressing ourselves through drawing. At some point, many of us turned our attentions to things less creative. Peter did not. Here’s why.
