These are a few of the projects I've worked on with the kids at the library in the past and so I after our meeting at St. Augustine School of the Arts, we decided on a variation of these along with a few others. What I love so much about working with kids is that they are totally open to learning new things without being concerned about judgement either from self or others. Some of them don't even need direction, just the tools and a sample and they're off. If you would have told me six years ago that I would love teaching children, I'd have disagreed, but I do. And the greatest gift for me is to see their pride in their work, no matter whether it looks at all similar to the sample, they just feel pleasure in creation and are amazed at what they can accomplish. It warms the cockles of my heart.
