the most important thing people did for me was to expose me to new things. – temple grandin



our class went to see

 nick cave’s art exhibit

up close and personal

sound suits






then made

their own accessories

in his style


learned so much

about art having no boundaries

 how things can look and sound and feel

art can be found in all kinds of places


most of all

that each of them are artists in their own right.

  1. I so deeply admire Temple Grandin for her overcoming her Asperger’s and becoming an expert on humane slaughter houses. She really knew how to think “outside the box,” Beth.
    As far as this fantastic classroom field trip, I am amazed this was even possible. Down in Ohio, we are lucky to make it to a park or pumpkin farm, Beth. I am so proud of you for getting this achieved! What an awesome experience for the kinders! 🙂 🙂

  2. Learning and experiencing that we are each capable of art in our own way is such a valuable lesson. The number of adults who think they aren’t artistic or creative is really sad. Your students have a great start to believing in their ability to make art. Awesome! ❤

  3. So fantastic Beth. I think Temple Grandin is a marvelous human being. What a neat field trip.

    I don’t have a background in art but I’ve found as volunteer art teacher, i’m open to so many different expressions of art, the kids enjoy every minute of it. They are all artists.
