It's always amazing to me what we can do working with recycling.
I mean, I do plenty of recycling of crafting materials, but wo literally hunt around someone else's recycling...and make art. Not all my style, I'll admit, but I like them all, actually.
Jack was there as my assistant, but I'll let him blog his impression if he wants to. I will say, however, that he astonished everyone there with his speed -- he made six cards!
Anyway, we did have a great time. I am not sure I acted as "teacher" so much as "catalyst". The calibre of art that came out of this afternoon's adventure was very exciting -- especially given how hesitant some folks seemed. I don't think they all started out thinking of themselves as artists.
And they were a lovely group of young people. Very warm, and welcoming ... and with a couple of sparkling exceptions, just as introverted as I am. It was a little quiet at first, but we all relaxed and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun!
I am looking forward to teaching with Ann Arbor Free School again. Maybe with something where there is more to say. :p
