Today, children from the Thompson building visited the studio in order to explore a variety of provocations. They worked with natural materials, paint, and droppers to create designs and patterns in the style of artist Andy Goldsworthy. They also observed branches while doing contour drawings to match, raced toy cars, worked with yarn, and explored a provocation of reflective and transparent manipulatives. During their entire stay, the children had the inside lights off, working only in natural light entering from the large, studio windows. One room used this to their advantage in their extensive study of light and reflection!
