great things.

Standard

tiny kinder spent nearly an hour

 focused

working alone

not asking for any help

very carefully snipping tiny pieces

from the roll of sticky green tape

 placing them on her fringed orange paper. 

when she was happy with what she had created

her beautiful piece of art was done.

“great things are done by a series of small things brought together.”

-vincent van gogh

brighter.

Standard

no students today

teachers get together to talk and play

and

to see how it feels for our kids

as we encourage them to experiment

to play with the process

rather than make a project

 for the pure joy of creation

we try out materials

with no expected outcome

just for the chance to see what will happen

when we are finished

we share what we’ve made with each other

and as it happens

each one is a beauty in its own way.

“colours are brighter when the mind is open.”

-adriana alarcon
