Today, a group of children from the Thompson building helped with a large painting to be displayed at an event for SMCC! After they were finished, most decided to work with a provocation of natural materials inspired by the works of a now familiar artist. Through conversation, some really neat connections were made between peers and the spaces they had each occupied for their explorations!!!
Arianna: Look at my lines!
Kaden: I made the water (while pouring blue paint)!
Finley: Yeah… it’s the lake!!!
Kaden: Oh no! The lava went in my water and it got hot (a friend’s red paint begins to run into his blue)!
WHAT HAPPENS NOW?!
Kaden: It just gets hot.
Finley: The rocks are moving!
Finley: Because the lava is hot! See, I put more lava right here!
