Padre Bird

Padre Bird
I taught a workshop yesterday in snail mail art.  There were 15 energetic participants.  Total excitement and high energy making for lots of enjoyment.  I love seeing how others attack the idea presented. Each postcard turned out so different from the others.  Just a grand day!

Recently I sent  snail mail to someone in Canada.  The recipient's husband, who usually does not care much for this type of collage went crazy describing symbolism and the narrative in the art.  I love it! Isn't that what it is all about?.....making up the narrative for what we are looking at.  I know I do.  In fact, even when I people watch I make up stories about the people that catch my eye.  It is just fun!

Love that bird. And the phonics teaching - why does voiced th not have a final example like bathe, I ask myself?! It is hard to give up on analysis using erstwhile guidelines...

I am sure that was great fun- as a teacher as well- nothing beats seeing students go wild with a class project.
