A Moment of Brilliance

Today’s Moment of Brilliance comes to us from the students at Arts for Learning’s Building Assets afterschool program at Centro Mater East.  Under the guidance of teaching artist Asser Saint-Val, the students were challenged to create board games inspired by their families.  Students had to envision a concept for their games, create rules, and design game boards, playing pieces, and packaging.  For the final class, Asser and his students set up a gaming area in the playground and all of the students at Centro Mater East had the opportunity to come and play the games with their creators. Visiting students got to try their luck at games like the elaborate “Martinez Family Sliders” where players try to knock golf balls in to a central target area to the Battleship-inspired guessing game “Where Are the Ortegas?” Students in Asser’s class created works of art that are fun for the whole family.
