Art du Jour

Mondays can be manic, especially in a creative space. The children have so much energy, so many ideas, so many emotions coming back to school after the weekend. Today in our atelier, though it looked like an explosion had happened, many things came into being from a variety of materials.

We have been using cardboard extensively, purposefully and beautifully. Egg cartons, cereal boxes and bottle tops have all been upcycled into new objects. Today, there was the freight train:   :photo 2

Simply providing opportunity by way of  space, materials, and a wee bit of freedom is enough for young children to imagine, create and give meaning to their world.
