A Tranformer Trip!
On our neighborhood walks, the journey can be as interesting as the destination. Children took time to look at the old call boxes along our route. They also noticed American and DC flags, Holy Trinity school, the wave mural, and Mr. Fox.
Not everyone wanted to build a transformer. Children helped to gather interesting images and materials for collages that could be a robot, a monster, an animal, or any sort of creature. Today, Elle, Marley, and Lochie worked on this. Sometimes their ideas changed as they were presented with different materials.
Elle - (Initially drawn to images of jewelry) I'm trying to make a fancy mummy.
Violet - I'm making a cat. I'm making him look beautiful.
Lochie - This is a leaf robot. with leaf hands and a leaf shaped head.
Violet - I'm making this kitty a pretty dress.
Elle - (Laughing) My kitty has a corn body.
Lochie - I want to draw the body. (Violet incorporated a lot of drawing in her collage as well.)
Lochie - (Starting his second collage). The body for this is a big flower.
Violet - (With a heart image) This is a pillow for the kitty. I'll add another heart and make it more beautiful.
In the studio area, children worked on negative space paintings. These were done on black paper, giving them a mosaic-like quality.
Have a great weekend! We're looking forward to seeing everyone for Valentine's/Pajama Day!
