Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

More from Collage Class

So, these are the remaining pieces from students in the girls' collage class -- fish, birds, bugs, etc. All of the children created a house after the girls talked about the artwork of Leo Leonni, Eric Carle and Lois Ehlert. They talked about texture and materials and then the students each created their own house. Many students also created a face. Although the girls encouraged them to try using torn paper for this, most were reluctant and they used other collage materials. The girls also reviewed the works of Mattisse and Romare Bearden and the students were encouraged to create their own piece. I also thought I'd post a picture of the space the girls set up for the class.
