Sometimes I have a plan and it changes. Smooth changes are best and this week my hat theme turned into shoulder pieces. I am helping out with costumes for the school musical and decided to make the most of the opportunity by creating an assessment task for some of my students to design and make costume accessories. Exciting stuff!
Criteria: imagine a decorative shoulder piece...what materials can we use to create it?
This is an interesting learning experience for all of us.
As inspired as I am by life and all the possibilities it offers, how can I help others to discover this? To see it in their own way?
I teach 3 days a week with a lovely bunch of people in a rural high school and am part of the support unit team. This means that I teach students with particular needs, however, it doesn’t necessarily mean they are any less capable, only that they learn differently or may need extra assistance.
Lucky for me, I like improvising and working out of the box. Each day is a teenage lucky dip and keeps me on my toes...physically and mentally.
We are making some amazing pieces!
For me, it seems there is not much difference between wondering and wandering. It has always helped me find inspiration. Creative dabbling is good for the soul, I couldn't imagine life without it and often surprise myself by what I come up with.
