This week we finally got to re-open the clay center after 3 years. We have been waiting for approval of installation into the new art studio.
The momentum has been building for quite sometime, so a “soft opening” like a restaurant was just right for us and making Artist Chops. Students can use their chops to sign future artworks for the year.
One of my favorite elementary teachers used to do head stands on the quad if we reached a new level of SRA’s in reading. We loved it! The memory of that great momentum and anticipation of a celebratory act inspired the idea for our students to do a few cartwheels for clay before class. So fun…except for one;) and of course mine. I did do a practice, solo though, on a professional development day. I bent over, legs did rise, but think pivoted sideways, not sure what happened…if trees could talk!
