Lego Class . I had an awesome opportunity this week to begin teaching a Lego class at my local library that will be going on infrequently for the next three months. In Dave Kaleta fashion, I started by having the kids build their names out of the bricks the library had available, teaching them basic SNOTwork and parts usage techniques. I had a blast, and can't wait for the next session. . Before the class started, I had this little elderly woman randomly walk up to me and point her finger. "Are you Paul Vermeesch?" she asked. When I replied in the affirmative, she said, "I've been reading about you on the internet." That was that. Apparently my reputation precedes me. Scary. I taught the kids some basic concepts about "outside the box" parts usage and some simple SNOT techniques. My SNOT jokes must have been terrible. I couldn't get any giggles out of any of them. Kids these days are hard to please... In all seriousness, though, the kids were fantastic and a real joy to play Legos with. That's me in profile there in the snazzy argyle sweater. I also brought Fred along to show the kids. I think the parents, though, were more impressed. I think the "H" is supposed to be an "A." Either way, I'm still not completely certain what this boy's name is. Though he didn't take any of my SNOT advice, Matthew was a pro as far as legibility and color consistency were concerned. Sarah surprised me when she came up with the idea for her "S" by herself. I think she was the only one to do a complete 180˚ SNOT connection. Next class: An in-depth discussion of LDU displacement and ratios, particularly SNARL and SNIR˚27 which can be expressed by the formula (tan^-1 x 1/2 = 26.57˚) as well as a more philosophical disputation about 3D composition and color scheming with particular emphasis on contextualized detail as it relates to landscaping. Stay tuned. Just kidding, but thanks for stopping by! Soli Deo Gloria!
