Experimentation May Lead To New Discoveries

 I gave students time to simply experiment with various media and tools.  The goal was to see if through their experiments a new art technique might be discovered.  You can see in the video how wonderful this type of activity can be.  Was it messy? Yes.  Did it get too loud? Yes, but it was from enthusiasm, excitement and true engagement.  In the end, I'm so glad we did it.  It helped them see how so many things are connected, how creating art is a journey, and how mistakes are opportunities to find hidden answers.
