Tiles in progress........

So far, here is where I'm at with the tiles. Some of the work will be done on site, adding grape vines... one bonus of doing fruit bowls and doing them in a timely manner, is that I get to eat the "still life"
Ate the mango today :-)

It's been awhile, but it's coming back to me.
I remember your radiance and how magical you made me feel about the world.
You were gone for such a long time, but now you are back.
You were deep in slumber, waiting for this time.
This time,
I will keep you in my heart center.
This time, I will not take you for granted.
This time,
You are deeply appreciated.

Art of the Young Child

I have been lucky enough to fall into the work I do... I give children an opportunity to create.
Important stuff - for them - for all of us. From the beginning of October until the end of March I give them a variety of materials to create with and take pictures of the creative process. The celebration of Week of the Young Child is this week, and we celebrated yesterday with a reception of their work... It is diplayed along the walls, covering both floors, and in the case.. It brings color and joy to all who see it. The next few posts are some of the photos... enjoy :-)

Party Time...

Sometimes, one sings their art...............

At the Reception...
Sharing their art with family and friends...
enjoying some snacks

Chatting with friends, finding their artwork..
and taking some time out to do a little dance

say "Cheese"

Parties over ....

What I have been up to....

I have been working with a group of preschoolers and the culmination is an art show of their work, their photos capturing the process of creating and some quotes to go along with it.
We worked with a variety of materials; paints, clay, collaging... always with some fun embellishments... but it is always about the processs of creating. Learning, playing, experimenting, playing and of course making a mess.

Sometimes, we need to taste our art :-)

This is a taste of some of the art they created. This was our flower garden with imaginary bugs.

Art is about having fun, and while having fun, they learn.
