“From the start of his five-day residency, Kevin infused the school and students with enthusiasm and curiosity.    We are all  now visually reminded of our journey with Kevin and of our rendezvous with wonder and discovery every day.”


Robin Williams
Visual Arts Teacher, St. James Academy
Monkton, MD

 

“I cannot say enough about the entire experience.  Kevin actively engaged over 300 students and never skipped a beat. He left behind more than a sculpture but a piece that exemplified teamwork, academics and pride.“


Brian Piscalko, 4th grade teacher
Sexton Elementary
St. Petersburg, FL

 

“Kevin Reese has been blessed with many talents, many accomplishments and many awards, but his greatest accolade is his ability to communicate, interact and guide students through the process of building a sculpture that will stand for many years to come.  How many of us can honestly say that?”


Monique Lewis
Arts and Humanities teacher
Belmont Elementary

"Way exceeded my expectations – very classy and kid-like at the same time.  This artist is a keeper.”


Mark Coates

Howard County, MD Public Schools

This program is TRANSFORMATIVE! We watched as various groups of kids…small children, high schoolers, home-schooled, public, parochial and alternative schools…all had the same kind of experience: owning the Moment of Discovery when you Create SOMETHING that has never been there before. I whole-heartedly recommend this program, not just to schools but to other PACs like ours.

"A perfect blend of the principles of art, math and science combined with a focus on teamwork and student design choices, collaborative artist Kevin Reese and School Sculptures knock it out of the park! The finished mobiles are beautiful and students are so proud of their work – and will be for years to come. An investment in the School Sculptures residency is money well spent!"

"The best enrichment money that I ever spent as a principal."
