We had one of our favorite field trip destinations...the Nasher. Not only do they give you a pencil and a sketchbook when you go there, they also have awesome exhibits and really cool projects to do. ;)
Today's class was on innovation in art...how artists use different materials that might not always be considered art material. Some of it really reminded me of my grandfather. He never met a piece of junk that he did not get along with, I don't think. He would have fit right in at this exhibit.
I think that Libby has something that she wants to contribute to this discussion...
Working on our projects. The kids had to decide whether to build a weather machine, time machine or machine to do their chores. Then they were each given a lunchbag full of stuff to use to build it. Everyone had different stuff. (Caroline, Libby and our friend Ben)
