Thanks for the kind words everyone. Was feeling very low. Spent some time
reflecting and writing out my thoughts for my post ob. Truely, there were
good things that came from this lesson in retrospect. For one, a student I
have who has autistic tendencies really responded to this lesson. Normally he
would only sit and play with glue on his fingers dispite encouragement to
handle other media. He actually made circles and lines on the page! This was
a remarkable moment, however quiet, for him.
This was my first "run" with this lesson, generally I have the bugs worked
out by the 2nd or 3rd time and am ready for anything. I am realizing more and
more how important it is that students know and problem solve the mistakes or
beautiful accidents that happen in art. I need work in this area, ways of
encouraging creativity. I am curious to hear from the super as she always
sends comments after a visit.
Thanks again to everyone,
