Before I moved to the suburbs of Long Island I taught art classes to 1-5 graders three times a week. I miss molding young minds and the inspiration it brings, therefore I have been playing with many different ideas and have decided to begin interactive inspirational posts (I'll call them Sparks) on the blog. You can participate or not- mostly it's just food for the soul.
My first prompt is taken from the Book Book by artist Sophie Benini Pietromarchi. I found this book in a round-about way via one of my favorite blog's, Julia Rothman's Book By It's Cover. I went to Tara Books where I found a diverse range of very artistic books from all over the world. While I'm on the topic of multicultural books, my friend Nathalie would like you to sign this.
The Book Book nurtures ideas and it's always a treat opening it up.
In chapter 2 Sophie states "There are No Rules!"
In chapter 2.1 Sophie show's a collection of things inside her pencil case...
In chapter 3.1 is the prompt for...
Massaging Your Imagination
A place to hide
Your favorite prince
Your favorite princess
