It’s your first day at Magnificent Marigold’s Magical Macademy. But before you can learn your first spell you must get through the sorting ceremony. And the sorting hat has chosen you for a special challenge. The Macademy had 8 founders who established four houses, and there was once a mysterious fifth house. Can you figure out who founded what? Dan Katz and Alex Rosenthal show how.
Lesson by Dan Katz and Alex Rosenthal, directed by Artrake Studio.
