Groups from Ms. Jennie’s class were invited to the studio where a provocation of natural materials awaited them. This was inspired by the works of Andy Goldsworthy, who sculpted and designed outdoors using many beautiful natural materials. While some were eager to participate, most of the children passed on this provocation to pursue other endeavors. The children painted, sorted different manipulatives, while participating in imaginative, cooperative, and parallel play. The children were also able to draw the patterns they had created! This was a very busy and explorative group. When the studio is being used as a multi-faceted space where children are free to accommodate their interests, it feels so alive and just… right!
