|Interspersed between the homes, abandoned homes like this one dot the streets of town.|
My students are from a small, isolated town with few jobs and scant opportunities. They are exposed to little art or culture and the highlights of most of their summers has been playing in the town swimming pool. However, they are beautiful, smart and sweet. Even in middle school. (Didn't see that coming) They are eager and open to learn and are chomping at their collective bits to get going on an art project. They touch my heart and often I have to be careful not to allow them to see the tears their sincerity brings up in my eyes. These children are remarkable people.
|Me. The assignment is to made a self-portrait using words only about yourself. Harder than it sounds. I can hardly wait to see what they come up with.|
Thanks for stopping by! Alice
