Remember, the mantra was “Proceed and Be Bold.” Everyone slept on bunk beds or mattresses on the floor, all in one room, with no heat (and the nights were freezing). We discovered that Lynnette drove faster than most race car drivers, and we listened to the story of how Hagen got her very first speeding ticket ever from an officer named Officer Pain, while driving to Alabama from Atlanta. Most important, though, we challenged ourselves at every turn.
Ivy, Liz, Frank, Danielle, and Hagen created a most fantastic journal out of scraps, all about how we quasi- adopted a mutt that became known as Fluffy, the nicest dog in Alabama. However, it turned out, Fluffy wasn’t fluffy in the least. You might remember how we climbed the 110-foot bird tower; or about the breakout sessions of discovery, where we learned about the infrastructure of the area- its past, present, and future; or about how we met some of the most amazing people in Greensboro with the most amazing stories— they were the real heroes of life.
Where are you now— “Proceeding and Being Bold,” we hope!
And they did, in the Swiss Design class Amanda Brennan, Yoonhwa Jang, Elizabeth Kelley, Melissa King, Kristen Murphy, Jille Natalino, Jenny Savage, Peter Smith, Thomas Toley, Kathryn Byrne. Imagine, “If there were no play, there’d have been no Picasso.” We have a message to say; for heavens sake—we must SAY IT. That’s the point!.
Delivering messages powerfully calls for observation! Often we look but we don’t really see… At Portfolio Center, students go into their environments, look, and actually DO see.. They approach their work, forgetting about things as they once knew them, just for a minute, and seeing them again all over for very first time—as if they were a child. That’s about the freedom of play, which leads to imagination… and imagination comes from things that move you. Here they have some fun with their projects, with their work, with themselves. Do come join us, and sit in!
