Meet the Facilitators: Sam Balfus

Sam Balfus connects with children. Wonderfully. A calm and patient teacher who just so happens to be an awesome artist in 2D, 3D, and digital media, Sam has been involved in maker education since 2017. Sam brings enthusiasm to everything he does, lighting up a room and sharing the love. Next time you see him, ask about where he gets the inspiration for his nametag art. Sam leads Tinkering School LA camps, afterschool classes, and drop-in Open Studio and Tinkering Club sessions. Originally from Santa Monica, Sam has a BFA to the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and taught at Bit Space before coming to reDiscover.
