I've been a bit quiet on the posting front as I have been frantically working and realising that there are not enough hours in a week, let alone a day!
The kids art classes are progressing and there is going to be some work to show at the end of term exhibition on 19th June. It's really fun to see what catches their imagination and also to discover their lack of critical skills. In some ways, it would make life a lot simpler if after the first drawing/ stitches I could say: 'yes it is fine and no I wouldn't change anything' and dive into the next thing! Saturday's class is going to be paper collage, looking at Matisse's paper cut outs and finishing off painting their mod-roc sculptures.
