not too far from the tree. . . .

blending oil pastels, Grade 1 art

There are many colours, shapes, and patterns on the needles at the studio these days.  I rise very early each day and by the time the sun sets, I frequently rejoice at the way I get to spend my days.  I am a Grade 1 teacher in an intensive fine arts program, and my days are spent in the company of the most joyful creative children.

I am inspired by these children.  Just take a look at how our school activities and my studio projects are beginning to resemble each other.
