My kids are back. (Insert huge *sigh* of happy.) They’re wiggly. goofy. intense. needy. chatty. singy. full of life.
And I treasure them.
Kid A thew down with the India Inks. Her creative passion flows through her dancing too.
Pretending she didn’t understand what a focal image was, Kid C reworked this page touting Girl Power! Which she promptly displayed by fashioning an “iPhone Hotel” (below) — pure genius!
The Kids check in their phones in at the beginning of class, and check them out afterward.
Kid Newbie A has a gift for layering and doodling. This summer she spent a month-long road trip with her parents diving in, finding her gorgeous, amazing voice as an art journalist.
Kid M gobsmacked me with her collaging skills. She’s putting words in, too, unmasking her personality.
And This Kid. This Kid is a first timer. Can you believe it? She took a lighthouse, flipped it upside- down, threw it in an ocean of wave-like of paint, then repeated waves and bridge-like marks on the opposite page. FIRST TIMER. I Kid you not.
And this little gem was just a little piece of somethin’ I found on the floor. It’s one of the many little treasures I get with these Kids.
