Back from the dead! I am not even going to talk about my extended absence from my blog. I think I have truly reached new heights when it comes to blogger disappearances! To admit I am ashamed about it would be truly an understatement. But, shame can’t hold me back….
I have been having a busy summer. Amongst other things, I started teaching art or rather STEAM art part time at a new academy (NoVA Enrichment Academy) near home. For those of you who are not familiar with STEAM, its STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) with infusion of art in it. Pretty neat eh? The kids are hilarious and I love how they twist and shape each art assignment to their own interpretation. These are kids ranging in age group from 6-8 years and as you can imagine their imaginations and creativity are boundless and not yet hampered by conventional ways of thinking. Sometimes I feel, we get boxed into the conventionality and lose our perspective somewhat. We did various projects based on science concepts and wove them into the art tapestry. The results were incredible! Here are a couple of pictures that I think you all will enjoy. There’s tons more stuff to share especially considering the amount of time I have been absconding..but I will get to it slowly. Don’t want to make this post too long and boring. I need you back the next time : )
