Having a great day, in class with the 6th grade. Our new artist is Picasso and we are dong the blue period. So I’m playing DJ and they are oil pastel-ing the idea “despair. ”
Setting in the shady palapa that is my classroom, playing the Decemberists to 7 little people. They scribble furiously, a blue head bobbing, a Winnie the poo” cap on another. All wearing swim suits under our clothes for the field trip to the beach. You can hear the chickens crowing next door over the music and occasional shouts from the 1st grade. Interesting place and time to mark and remember.
