Say hello to our marketing and communications intern Diya. Diya is spending part of her time at the Amazeum this summer documenting activities that ignite creativity, and curiosity. Follow along as she shares her Amazeum adventures.
Have you ever met someone so overflowing with creativity that you wonder what they’re going to think up next? Maxi Dominguez, artist, entrepreneur, community activist and Amazeum Maker in Residence is one of those people. Maxi joined the Amazeum team for a residency to facilitate screen printing sessions for adults and teens and brought with him a diverse perspective on the importance of creative thought and action to impact individuals and communities.
Hands-on internships are part of the summer experience at the Amazeum. College students interested in education professions intern at the Amazeum to discover new methods and techniques as well as experience the power and possibilities of providing students with learning activities grounded in making and tinkering.
Hey everyone! I am a senior at John Brown University studying Family and Human Services. This summer, I am super excited to be expanding my skill set by working with the Scott Family Amazeum as the Early Childhood Intern!
Hi! My name is Maggie Williams and I am going to be a sophomore at the University of Arkansas this fall. I am majoring in Human Development and Life Sciences to become a Child Life Specialist one day.
Makers, artists, and creatives are fascinating to talk with. While everyone has a story, and is often willing to tell it, makers not only tell, they show. Each maker’s story begins not with a blank slate, but on one etched with life experiences. Their story unfolds with visual aids of their own making adding depth and richness to the narrative. A recent Maker in Residence at the Scott Family Amazeum, Acadia Kandora, is a case in point. As a print maker, she creates in a medium that couples images born from imagination and experiences with words to tell her story.
Large-scale, interactive art installations at the Scott Family Amazeum UnGala FUNdraiser bring a unique opportunity for the Northwest Arkansas community to experience the creativity of makers and artists from throughout North America. The 2021 UnGala was no exception. Unlike previous year’s experiences Life Size Mousetrap, and Hand of Man, created by individuals, Impulse represents a collaboration between the arts and sciences, architects and engineers that created an opportunity for collective, interactive play at the perfect time.
