The focus of today's blog is conversations around Brown Room. Across all the materials experiences and classroom provocations, we found Brown Room in the throes of sharing and collaborating. To highlight all this beautiful reconnecting, we've decided to highlight snippets of their conversations in the different classroom spaces.
Valentine's Day Mail Bags in the Studio
Today Brown Room continued with their Valentine's Day Mailbags. Some children began painting the bags and others were ready for collage. Children had a variety of gold, red, purple and metallic materials to choose from to add dimension to creations.

Charlton: You could make it smaller.
