New Beginning

Today is day one of this new blog.
Starting to plan my new summer art programs, Creative Lab.  Trying to figure out how to design the classes to allow as much creativity without overwhelming the children. Some of them are so used to structure, that giving them a little freedom in their creative endeavor may throw them off tracks. I’m intending of using a Freinet Pedagogy as a guide to some of these activities: cooperation, inquiry-based learning, freedom in writing & drawing… promoting autonomy and self-confidence.
