This Work Reminds Me of Flying


The Prek 3 Classes have emabarked on a project. The children started talking about “statues” a few months ago when I had them working on a collaborative wire sculpture in the studio. Their excitement about seeing sculptures and statues in Washington, DC got the classroom teachers and I planning a trip to the National Sculpture Garden. They already “owned” the sculptures in their neighborhoods and parks, we were curious on how they would own sculptures in a formal DC space. This documentation sheds some light and reflection on the ongoing experiences.

    Thank you for another enlightening post! I had the pleasure of chaperoning this trip and it was incredible to see how these very young children interpreted and articulated their opinions, thoughts and ideas about the sculptures. Love that you gave them a chance to show what they absorbed from the trip as well. If I had any doubt as to what they really *got* it is erased after seeing their own creations – amazing!
