Today we laid it all out on the floor and it looks amazing so far. I’m finding that mosaic and making small clay parts with cookie cutters and handmade parts when possible is ideal for this community of learners. Paper mache also. I think these kids benefit greatly from hands on tactile repetitive experiences. These are techniques that work with all levels of ability to create a fabulous whole. Today Dasante came running into the art room with a big smile on his face. We all need more art then we get normally. It touches us in places that can’t be measured. It touches these children in ways we should be paying more attention too.Dasante’s butterfly
I’m happy that I got the proportions right!
