The families participating in our Weekly Art program continue to inspire us with their work!
"I so enjoyed this lesson! As a teacher - drawing figures for my chalkboard drawings has always been difficult, and I was rarely happy with the results. Learning how to first draw the gestures and then detailing it. Soooo much easier and successful! I will play more with this one!"
I was re-reading an interview Brian did with The BEarth Institute a couple of years ago...my favorite part is his response to this question:
"What makes a (teacher's) drawing 'good enough' for the classroom?"
"I think there are two important qualities that make a drawing successful:
1. The image is living inside the teacher and the students, meaning the class has heard stories, looked at pictures, studied the subject, etc. and,
2. The students see the teacher or parent striving to become better as he/she draws & teaches.
I think a love of creating beautiful images for the children and a willingness to strive for improvement is the best anyone can do."
