Class Notes, November 8, 2012

 What a wonderfully interesting, engaging, inclusive, funny, educational and joyful afternoon we spent with Jorge and his hundreds of different percussion instruments and sound-makers. His drumming skills, his technique explanations and his teaching rapport kept us all rapt with attention, and the diverse and full afternoon passed too swiftly. Thank you Jorge.
  On Monday with the simplest little frames cut out of cardboard, with a 3/4 inch by 1 1/2  inch aperture, or 1 inch by 2 inch aperture, we wandered over the foundation of light building and the chidren taped their clear vision windows to parts of light switches, floor knots, fabric patterns, light and shadow patterns, outside views, abstract floor shapes, etc., and drew what they saw in their little windows in their sketchbooks. The focus and enthusiasm and creativity in locating their little frames was remarkable. I could see worlds of seeing opening up before their eyes. Sometimes teaching gives more than you expected.
