Interior Design

This semester, Interior Design 2 students have been working on commercial design. At the beginning of the school year, Principal Josh Miller from Cherokee Trail  Elementary contacted Mrs. Arielle Bergmann about teaming up to give the Interior Design students some authentic work experience. At Cherokee Trail Elementary, they have an awkward space in their library that was not being used. They hired my class to assess the space, consult with the students using the space, and to propose design plan for a new functional look for the space. The CHS students worked in teams to come up with a proposal. The Interior Design 2 students went to visit with the 6th grade class and the teachers to see what the space looked like and what they wanted out of the space. This helped the CHS students envision what they were looking for but also to assess the needs of the space. Once the Design students presented their proposals, the Cherokee Trail Elementary students voted. The students chose the Jungle Hideaway theme created by Hailee Benton and Savannah Sherwin. Hailee and Savannah then became the project managers for the project. They managed the budget, shopping, and facilitating the roles of the others students helping to implement the project. Mrs. Bergmann is so very proud of how well they all worked together and how the project came out. Below are some before and after shots of the space. Please give a high five and shout out to these students for a job well done.
