Hello CGMS families and friends. We are back after a lovely winter break and the studio is already buzzing with activity.We added alot of found objects, ribbons, string, googly eyes, poms and more to our central supply shelves and students are busily creating some three dimensional pieces.Painting remains an evocative activity for every student and the liquid water colors add so much vibrancy to the stark winter landscape.We have placed the water soluable oil pastels on a small table with 150lb water color paper, for independent work. The effects of this wonderful media in combination with liquid water color, is breathtaking.We have added a dramatic play area to the studio with some scarves and lengths of fabric. We have already seen: house play, the three little bears, super heros, mermaids, pricesses and more.
The block building area remains a point of interest and we have added a clipboard, paper and black pens for the students to record their creations.
What fun! We are excited to begin papermaking next week and continue our studio explorations.
