How Do We Love?

Alex, grade 1

We all experience love in some way.  As people, one way we can show love by sharing.  Sharing moments, words, thoughts, objects and much more.  As artists, we can show love by creating something for someone else.  We can make connections between what we make, why we make it, who or what it's dedicated to and the moment of giving. This is the conversation we had.   We also looked at various artworks and asked the question,
"What could this artwork tell us about love?"  Some images were challenging as students realized that love has many sides, some happy some sad, but in the end, it is something we all share throughout the world. 

Paintings, cards, and small pots were created by students with a particular person in mind to share them with.
