Today was our first day with The Artist in the School!
We had a great time!
Students had to spend time writing about themselves trying to use the right side of their brain. This meant that they were to write without worrying about spelling or grammar. They were supposed to write whatever popped into their head. This helped them with creativity. I was shocked at how much some students were able to write - especially those who always tell me they have nothing to say! It was fantastic to see!!
Later on, we were asked to participate in a drawing activity where the students paired up with another student. One student had to describe the picture below to their partner and they had to draw the picture without looking at it. They only had their partner's words to listen to while trying to recreate the image. Some of the pictures were pretty interesting. I think they learned how important it is to choose the right words when describing something.
