The children are putting their final touches on their passports, which will come home this week.
They are now working on surrealistic landscapes, inspired by the artwork of Joan Miro. We will also look at paintings by the surrealist Paul Klee.
When we move on from Surrealism, we will make a dream city inspired by works by the Congolese artist Bodys Isek Kingelez. We will use recycled materials and cardboard. If you have candy/gum wrappers, small bottles or other packages that you think could decorate or be a building, please clean them and bring them to school. (Please don’t bring packaging that contained peanuts.) They will go into a collection for everyone to use to create a small city.
Sally Snake has taken lower case l and m. The children have been asking about Duck, who is still vacationing in Florida. As the weather gets warmer, he will be returning to guard the rest of the alphabet.
