This is how Chris and I look together. Chris is a special second grader I had the privilege to meet last school year. He got all the important bits right..the earrings,the mop of curls on the top of my head and the big grin. I adore this drawing.
I saw Jyair writing with his little stub of a pencil and said it would make a great earring. He said no way and I said if you trade it for a big pencil I will come in tomorrow with pencil earrings. Silly boy didn’t believe me!
Tahid was a 2nd grader at Grace Norton Rodgers School. As he said it was a dream come true for all of us. We had a great time making our mural for the front of the school
I’m an artist/ teacher and hoping to make things easier for others by sharing my projects. I hope that others will share with me as well and make my life easier. Perhaps I need to learn something new. I really don’t know. Late in life I discovered I love to work with special needs kids being a non verbal type. I have no idea about what I’m doing or where I’m going with this blog thing but I can’t wait for it to be fun. The learning curve is steep for me and I’m mildly frustrated. I always encourage kids to take risks and so I am taking my own advice and diving into the abyss. My personal work can be seen at marilynkeating.net or sjmoc.com
