Sorry I haven’t been over to visit for a while. Had a lot going on and not really sure it will be dying down soon…I am stuck at home for a few days until my van gets fixed, the fuel pump went out on it.
I have had problems with the middle school my daughter goes to…had problems with them last year when my oldest son was going there too. I blog about it…there’s been so much going on that my mind is just jumbled when it comes to getting the words down.
I ….forgot what I was going to say, Karalyn’s determined we ARE making cookies tonight!
I remember now…When I taught art at the Lutheran school, it was an eye opening experience. When I started out I did colored wheels to show them primary and secondary colors. Their response was “What do you think we’re in Kindergarten?”….but when I asked them to draw a flower, about 80% of them didn’t know how to draw a simple flower. This is sad, that was one of the very first things I learned to draw, but then I was born into a family who was very artistic! Still, it floored me!
I think I was 22 when I discovered my talents. I was working in a daycare teaching 3 year olds. I had to come up with art projects…and it took off from there.
I’ll post something on my blog later, gotta go help my daughter make cookies.
Have a good night!
I’ve been recently thinking about the fact that I hadn’t seen you around in a while. I figured real life was taking precedence. It has a way of doing that. Glad to hear it’s nothing too serious keeping you away.
The task of drawing a flower was a fine example at just how limited children become under the right circumstances. Like you said, you came from an artistically rich environment and that does make a difference. We are all products of our environment. That is why it is so important to nurture a child’s creativity and curiosity to insure that they can and do become all that they can be.
Enjoy your cookie baking. Mmmmm… cookies! 😛
