We’ll be making a variety of significant contributions to art history and science, from sculpture and frescoes to aqueducts and catapults! Every project was chosen for a very specific reason: how it impacted history, the knowledge and skills needed, how it relates to other art and invention. We’ll also be discussing science, aesthetics, theory, and more as it relates to what we are making that week!
Fall projects include: The Art of the Lascaux Cave, Eyed Needle, Unleavened Bread & Butter, Metalworking, Mesopotamian Lyre, Cuneiform Tablets/Reed Pens/Hieroglyphs, Shaduf, Senet, Minoan Pottery, Sarcophagus, and more.
Live sessions will be best experienced with a camera and microphone. Parents will need a Zoom account (free). Students may also create a free Discord account to get access to a class-specific channel.
Samantha Matalone Cook, MAT
Samantha is an educator, historian, writer, maker, and speaker. She has almost three decades of experience in education, program development, and the arts and is a dedicated mentor and lifelong learner.
We have thoroughly enjoyed ancient history with Sam Matalone Cook and would love to continue following the history courses under her instruction. Michelle’s writing workshop was a welcomed addition to our semester and the ease of adding on a quick workshop to the semester was appreciated. I do wish that I could take classes, too. The great selection makes me jealous; Fairy Tales and Feminism would be so incredible to join in and to learn with Sam! And the LGBTQ+ history and US courses! Blair’s enthusiasm for science comes across strongly and is encouraging for the young learners. So many great classes- so little time.

Research Boot Camp was a fun & engaging workshop that covered import skills I’ll use throughout my academic career. L.C.
Research Boot Camp was fun & engagingTeacher: Samantha Matalone Cook
This was an awesome class — Sam (the instructor) really engaged the kids, inspiring them and supporting their interests (and quirks!). There was quite a bit of material covered in the four sessions, with a great balance of demonstration, discussion, and tasks to complete on their own. Sam was also available for answering questions between sessions and posted the material (including video recording), which was very helpful. Our son loved this class and really looked forward to it every week. All the best! Ariel

Thank you! Thank you! Your fantasy map making class was fantastic. What my kids enjoyed is that it was in-depth, messy, and tactile. It was not elementary or overly cautious. It utilized real art materials and challenged them to think creatively and concretely about their ideas.
Your high school research class was informative, clear, and concise. Maya is now utilizing the tools she learned from you in her high school and college classes. I’m going to look for any class you are teaching in the future; and I’m going to recommend you to my friend circle. I’m so glad we found SEA online. If you teach on any other platform, I’d love to know.
Thanks again for great classes!
