Here is the story of our collaborative painting piece from the open-house as it was presented to the students:
and touch it...
In fact they couldn't keep their hands off of it!
Here is what they thought of the collaborative painting piece:
Ms. Babalis: What do you think about this painting made by the visitors?
E.L.: That's beautiful.
Z.L.: I don't know why they made a bird.
N.Z.: They tried their best, because I see them do it kind of nicely. I think that the visitors were proud of it, because they tried hard.
J.J.: Beautiful, because it's add detail.
J.A.: Because it is so creative, because the sky looks like the picture.
M.L.: It's beautiful and the sky is nice and they painted some hills.
J.G.: It's beautiful and I liked it, and your dad painted a little eagle. I like it!
G.G.: I see blue sky.
S.F.: I like the painting, because it's beautiful and it's so colourful and it's so detailed. I really like it and it's nice!
C.H.: It's really good, because it looks good. (Points to the white spot on the painting.) The visitors didn't paint that spot. (Points to the bottom of the painting.) That looks like a forest fire.
T.M.: I think that they took really long to make it, because I see that they did Monet's "tache" technique.
Now it rests in my office with the purpose of inspiring me to blog for all of you amazing educators (many of which contributed in creating it) who are following our journey! I'm still in disbelief with the turn out to our open-house event, and especially with visitors driving three to four hours in the rain to see us.
