My elementary art students and I are up to our elbows in paper-mache and we are all loving it! Our art room looks like a zoo complete with visiting guests in various stages of completion.
Though by the end of my day I am feeling sick from the combined smell of flour, water, masking tape and newspaper I am thrilled that my students, and their parents too, are getting so much joy from this project!
I am so thankful to God for this opportunity He has given me to do two things I love at once – teach and be creative. It is not always easy… there is that sickening smell, 20 sticky aprons, and a trashed art room, not to mention the various levels of motivation represented by my multicultural students. But there is that joy!
