L a n d s c a p e s

(inspired by Wolf Kahn)

We read the story "Ish" by Peter Reynolds. It is about a boy who does not like what he draws, crumples it up and throws it away. However, his sister finds his work beautiful, collects all of his drawings and hangs them up to create a gallery in her room. She tells him that even though he thinks they aren't perfect, they look "ish" to her(flower-ish, fish-ish, sunset-ish). Students at the studio were asked to pick a card with a subject or descriptive word on it, not tell anybody what it was, and then paint/draw the word. In the end we had a gallery show and shared our "ish" thoughts.

Great way to start off the Fall Session. Beautiful birch trees!
