Well today’s session was very much in the dark, we couldn’t get into a virtual classroom at all.
I asked the children to use charcoal. This is the first time they used it.
Teacher Tony asked children to touch smell, taste the charcaol talked about what is is where it comes from…asked children to divide paper and conduct tests in each section making notes about how they made different marks.
It will be good to really explore the materiality of the charcoal and paper – wood product to wood product – to practice thinking about materiality in their future work with instructions. They are going to try the editions of instructions to see how it works. I really would like to keep this really open to invent solutions thinking about materiality and processes in order to follow adopt,adapt instructions in the creation of an artpiece.
I am dying to see the photos from today’s session.
