Inspired by Harold, all my art classes are working toward a low relief paper sculpture aka 3-D mural of a purple city. Exactly what the final product will be is unclear, but we are collaborating big time. The goal is to contribute to and recognize a group effort.
Pre-K kids are working on folding and cutting, and glue stick protocol. The elementary students are doing printmaking. Shaving cream marbling is on deck for next Wednesday.
Grandma's house was a bit younger than the rental, but the floor squeaks were the same. After a big meal of Grandma's cooking, Dad and I would walk all around town. I would soak up his stories of growing up in Pierce in the Depression, and of all the characters who lived in the little old houses. I'm so thankful for these vivid memories crowding our recollections of Dad's final months.
