|Haven't used my heavy French tackle box in years...|
I'm starting my first tutoring session with an adult student this evening. I've worked with kids for so long. And, just like with my fourth graders, tonight we're starting with pinch pots. We're going to make rattles. Pinch pots are so versatile, because they can take off in so many directions: totems, giant beads, organic shapes, sculptural forms, and so much more. I'm trying to channel all of my previous teachers, and realizing how grateful I am for their investment of time and effort. Wish me luck!
|These are some "keeper" tools that are going back into the box...|
|Sorry little piggy, these tools aren't "basics"...|
|Now I feel like I'm ready to teach, with some of my "go to" tools...|
|The pinch pot, it's such a glorious stepping stone...|
