|Lisa Arnold ... my childhood friend ... mosaic artist ... volunteered in our classroom this morning!|
She wanted to teach the kids that they can deal with grief or other emotions through art in a positive way!
She focused on two art terms ... contrast & tesserae! (Ask your kiddos what those mean!)
Her message was powerful! She talked as they created ... "You are somebody ... No matter what color, age, etc... "
"Don't let anyone ever tell you any different!" She shared a poem with them called ... I Am Somebody! We are
going to add it to our poetry anthology and create one of our own using it's pattern!
