So, the "other Jan" gets them thinking and writing about the events of their life, both, large and small and I'm showing them ways to express themselves by adding art to their stories. In the photo above, we took pieces of a collage and rearranged them to demonstrate how each person has their own idea of how the piece fit together.
These were the pieces.....hopefully, I will be able to share the finished page with you next time. The story that goes with these pieces is even better, it is about a flashy aunt who always had perfectly manicure red finger nails. Do you have a story like that? How would you express it in art and words?
Just because.......I have to share the latest Gelli prints!
I'll share my class story, as well, I remember a neighbor woman who every day sold produce in an out-door Farmer's Market in downtown Portland. I don't know where the produce came from but she would load it in the trunk of her white Cadillac and drive off wearing a black dress that her slip ALWAYS hung below and her unkempt hair.
Funny, the things we remember.....that is why it is so much fun to write them down and one day your family and friends will treasure those stories.
