Do you want to play astronaut? - Finlay
I’m playing ninjas. - Arthur
I like Ninjago. - Finlay
I like Ninjago too. - Arthur
So maybe we can play! - Finlay
Yeah, we can be friends. - Arthur
As trust between the children builds and grows, so does their collaboration.
Elle, Jack, CC, and Aida all started the day at the studio with drawing materials. Taking inspiration from one another, Jack, CC, and Aida all trace their hands.
I don't really know how to trace my hand. - Elle
I can teach you! You just put your hand down and... (mimics tracing) like that. You put the pencil between your fingers. - Aida
Elle gave it a try and enjoyed success! In the end though, her drawing morphed into something new.
Still at the studio table...
Do you think you can give me a lesson on getting the tape without using scissors? - Aida
I can show you. I take a short piece of tape, I put it in my nails, and I pull. - Jack
Aida tries Jack’s method and is successful!
It’s hard to tell when it comes off. It’s just tape being tape. - Aida
In the outdoor classroom, children continue to borrow each other's ideas... with hilarious results!
Finishing Wire (with clay)
To wrap up our experience with clay, we invited the five children who did not yet have the chance to try wire and clay. Take a look at our conversation.
I'm making a rainbow! - Sylvie
Mine's an airplane house that flies! - Aida
I'm going to try to make a circus. One time I did it with clay. - CC
Look what I did with wire! I poked this side to this side. I made an airplane. This is the propeller! - Lucas
(I made) a little island. I don't know how to explain it anymore. - Jack
Check back next week to see where else clay takes us!
See you Monday!
