kinetic kids club

Horace O’Bryant School students, teachers and “Kinetic Coach” Suzanne Brown are pictured on Thursday morning with models they are making of Key West landmarks—including the Key West Lighthouse, La Concha Hotel, Sloppy Joe’s Bar, and the Southernmost Point marker—to be incorporated into the school’s kinetic float creation for the upcoming Key West Art & Historical Society Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade (think art with parts that move). Pictured left to right are: Alfredo Mejia, “kinetic coach” Suzanne Brown, Miguel Mejia, Devora Bustillo, Lurieth Guerra, Lucie Bublakova, Cole Jackson, HOB teacher Katie Holtkamp, and Uliana Ivannikova.
Horace O’Bryant School Studio Art students, Alfredo Mejia, Miguel Mejia, and Devora Bustillo work on a paper mache Key West Lighthouse replica, a component of the school’s entry for the upcoming Key West Art & Historical Society Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade, a fabulously wacky tribute to late Keys rebel-metal artist Stanley Papio, which launches from the Custom House Museum at noon on Saturday, May 4. 
Horace O’Bryant School Studio Art student Marc Louissaint works on a model of the La  Concha Hotel on Thursday morning, which will be incorporated into the larger design of a kinetic sculpture float for the upcoming Key West Art & Historical Society Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade, set for a noon kickoff at the Custom House Museum on Saturday, May 4. The finished float, which is being crafted from recycled materials, will reflect two aspects of Key West, as both a hometown and a tourist town, and highlight the responsibility of both locals and visitors to preserve it.
HOB is getting ready for the Parade: Left to right, “Kinetic Coach” Suzanne Brown works with Horace O’Bryant School Studio Art students Uliana Ivannikova, Lucie Bublakova, and Katelyn Jones on Thursday to create one of multiple pieces that will compose the school’s entry in this year’s Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade. When finished, this unidentifiable concentration of newspaper over wire will emerge as a beautiful flower, with hinges that allow it to move, and will be added to other components of the students’ float which is to feature multiple Key West symbols and landmarks.
Horace O’Bryant School Studio Art students Alexis Alewine and Lincoln Tomberlin work on creating a faux Key Lime pie on Thursday morning, which will be incorporated into the larger design of a kinetic sculpture float for the upcoming Key West Art & Historical Society Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade, set for a noon kickoff at the Custom House Museum on Saturday, May 4. The finished float, which is being crafted from recycled materials, will reflect two views of Key West, as both a hometown and a tourist town, and highlight the responsibility of both locals and visitors to preserve it.
Some of the features that will be incorporated into Horace O’Bryant School’s Papio Kinetic Sculpture and Art Bike Parade float include these work-in-progress sculptures of the Key West Lighthouse, palm trees, the Southernmost Point Marker, a Mile 0 sign, La Concha Hotel, and more.

horace o'bryant school

Under the direction of Seana Cameron and Jimmy Wray, the HOB STEM Class created a collection of Kinetic Sculptures. The sculptures include: The Dragon- from mythological and literary times (Andres Pena), The Tardis – a Time Travel and Solar system (Eszter Gurdon), The Big Blue – an ocean life science scene (Sadie Dodds), The Cobra - An ancient Egyptian montage (Nelson Sawyer), Sacred Feathers; the Greek Rooster Walkers – These birds were valued elements of the ancient world(Seana Cameron –(teacher), Kendra Johnson, Priscilla Castro-Sanchez, and Angela Boeskool.
Without intending it, the children have represented the various elements for their learning experiences. They have thus chosen to change their collective title to, “Our Times”.
Teacher, Seana Cameron, leads her students on their kinetic sculptures and art bikes down Duval Street.
