In between Reading, Writing, and Arithmetic the craft monkeys were extra busy this week.
They started working on chipboard house books, kindly donated to us a couple of months ago by yet another classroom fairy godmother.
They worked in their envelope books. This year I’m taking lots more photos for them to put inside their visual journals.
Somehow I managed to get the room in order by the time the parents arrived.
Today I rustled through my scrap piles some more for REMAINS OF THE DAY. I am 1/4 of the way through class preparations. When it got too dark to videotape I made some cool digital elements in Photoshop for you to download and use in your shabby journal of scraps. You’ll be able to print on nice paper and cut out. if you’re a label junkie always looking for your next fix, I think you’ll dig the downloads.
I’m deeeeeeeelighted at how Prototype 2 is coming together. Simple, but quite fabulous. I really would like to show you. But I can’t. It’s a secret. For at least a little longer. Get your fabric scraps ready, put the batteries in your camera, sharpen your scissors, pick out your favorite glue stick, collect your thoughts (or scatter depending on how you work best), fill up your ink well, rev your sewing machine, and strap yourselves in. We’re going on a ride muchachos!
Registration is going to begin on December 1st. Class will begin approximately 2 weeks later. The videos, pdf’s, everything will be available for a year lending new meaning to the term WORK AT YOUR OWN PACE.
