What is a Tantamounter you ask? Well, It's basically a large Xerox machine. Except, instead of making paper copies, the tantamounter creates 3-Dimensional, artful replicas of objects.
Faculty and staff were asked to loan objects to the art 1 classes to be replicated. And, they did not disappoint. A variety of interesting objects came in.
The students got to work immediately. Conversations were thoughtful and on-task. Students not only were looking closely at their objects (Artists Observe), but were also making informed choices about how to replicate and what materials to use (Artists Problem Solve).
