What a wonderful week! Even with the not-so-spring-like weather, I really enjoyed the residency. We had two major projects going on. Each morning, I worked with Grades 3-5, repurposing plastic items (with LOTS of bottle caps) to make stepping stones. Students have the choice to donate their stone back to the school for the beautiful school garden, or they can bring their piece home, when they’ve cured.
In the afternoons, I worked with Grades 1 and 2, making paper using ripped up scrap paper and an assortment of natural materials.
South School’s Art Teacher, Marcia Connors has been fabulous to work with! We’ll celebrate all of this work on April 22 as part of the Art Show.
