SolART

January 2014 – February 2015 

Central Charter School of Boca Raton, Florida will participate in the International Solar Tree Kinetic Art Sculpture program created by International Kinetic artist Rein Triefeldt.

Educational component of the International Kinetic Art Exhibit and Symposium. 

When the Arts Commission was forming their visioning plan their goal was to deliver an art event that transcended typical art fairs, brought international attention to the City of Boynton Beach, educated and engaged the public in the arts.  Ralfonso shared similar goals and was often approached by educators to speak to students about how Kinetic Art is made. Ralfonso brought his experience with kinetic art projects. He collaborated with universities in China and Sweden to integrated the creative disciplines such as sculpture, engineering, science, physics, fabrication and the environment to create dynamic kinetic art sculptures.  These have been huge successes and a learning experience for all involved.

Kinetic Art organization co-founder,  Rein Treifledt who has created functional solar driven kinetic art throughout the Nation and now Internationally was introduced to the collaborative.  Rein’s interdisciplinary curriculum is the exact focus for integrated based  learning that is now becoming a National standard.  He has been working with professors at Drexel University to incorporate his Kinetic Solar Art curriculum into the national school systems.
