Tinker Department

On View: April 7 – 30, 2023 at Maine Craft Portland

Artist and Teacher Shaun Aylward takes tinkering, curiosity and play to the next level with his K-8 students at Breakwater School of Portland, Maine. In this fun and interactive exhibition, we will witness the journey of learning through play through the eyes of young and emerging artists at their earliest stages. The objects and interactive elements of this exhibition are the result of Shaun and his students’ unique visions, experiments and projects. More details coming soon!

Breakwater’s mission is to engage our students in an optimal learning experience that inspires them to live well on the planet, embrace their whole being, and realize their full potential. We accomplish this by continually reviewing and applying best educational practice while remaining true to our community’s values and spirit.
