I've been all over the city today! Northwards to Elkins Park for a residency class- when I walked in, the school counselor saw me with my bag of brushes and cups and asked "Are you the watercolor lady?" Apparently one of the 5th grade students I'm working with has been very excited about painting in math class and has made behavioral improvements as a result (YES!!). It's the best gift I have when working with classroom teachers, creating opportunities for them to see different capacities in their students and positively change their perceptions. (PS- I'm not just a watercolor lady!hahaha!)
Next stop was Saint Joseph's University on the Main Line. The art department was presenting their annual student show. Leading up to Boland Hall were these wonderful wooden crate constructions, each playing with the idea of the rectangular prism. I love art that transforms simple materials and makes us see things differently.
This is definitely a season of transition.
