teaching art

last month i started being an assistant art teacher in a local elementary school. i work with a large group of 9-10 year olds and a small rotating group of special needs children. the job can be very demanding, though it is always rewarding. Connie comes up with the assignments and Joyce and I work one on one with the kids helping them complete their work.

so far we've made paper mache bowls, totem poles, clay beavers, and paper flowers.

at first i thought the kids were using coloured sand in their flower pots, but Connie had actually got them to colour salt using chalk. the little hands here are David's and the other two are Joyce's.

here are some of the beavers. one of them looks like a rhinoceros and another like a walrus...maybe they're hybrids :p
