Tonight, my Mom joined my art class. It was lovely to have her and her artistic help. The kids really dove into various media through a full inquiry process. The invitation was my materials box, filled with silk flowers, random miniatures, Popsicle sticks, feathers, and anything else I could pick up at Value Village. Add to that, packages of clay and exploration was on! The results were varied and wonderful. Mom helped me facilitate reflection with the students which helped them work their way toward balance and movement in their works. The students joined up at times and worked on their own at others. Overall, it felt like we played a lot tonight, which is never boring.
